4.1 - Short report of the board members 1)

  • Board:
  • Guillaume: Swiss Major update, the csource code of the e-voting system CHVote has been uploaded on github: Swiss Pirates have been fighting for this for 4 years so this is a major victory!

ECOSOC membership app: Guillaume is lobbying other UN orgs to gain their support.

Guillaume has been approached about organizing a Global Internet Governance Conference which will take place in December.2017 in Geneva, as well as a Think Twice satellite conference

       --Keith suggests a thorough finance plan for this. Also, crowdfunding?
  • Bailey: Nothing to report aside from getting a "response" from Iceland re: PPI was a conversation irl, and I will write up a report on what was discussed about PPI.

  • Andrew:

I will set up an infographic on the economic bias of PPs.

I have also not yet set up the Kraken. I believe we have abandoned the possibility of a PPI treasurer email. I set up a treasurer PP Israel email for the log in, but our admin warned me that it would be better to have the email with PPI. Otherwise, the goal of making the treasurer login independent of me will not work, as the email will still be stuck with PP Israel. I highly recommend that I create a random email for the treasurer log-ins. The log in username should be kept secret.

I will put together a protonmail

  • Koen:

  • Thomas:

  • 1) Very short and brief. For important issues add an agenda item!

5 Informative part

5.1 - Informative - Task #346: Member and contact databases updates

Work is ongeoing to collect and update contacts. Keith recieved from Guillaume the current contact database maintained on the swiss CiviCRM (2 lists)

Keith matched the lists with our list of registered member and non-member pirate parties. However the list is not up to date. Guillaume suggests doing a call out on the mailing list and Facebook groups for this information. Keith will contact Marie-France Perroud of PPCH to work on this as well.

I have updated these emails, concatenated the lists on the spreadsheet.

5.2 - Informative - Task #350: IT - Servers relocations and consolidation

new server is almost finished to be set up, applications still need to be configured...Thomas is still working on this.

5.3 - Informative - Task #354: Access Inventory

Thomas Gaul started a list with those people who actually have access to certain services from PPI. In the end, the list should include all services!

Guillaume suggests that rather than figuring out who uses the services, we let them contact us if they want access (lots of people have access who are no longer involved in PPI).

Keith: I am fine with Guillaume's plan, but I think we should send an email to pp contacts letting them know that we have disabled the accounts. Make a call for new admins, old admins to get involved again, and promote our application server revamp.

A follow-up is required.

This should include even the tech stuff.

Please help out!


Nothing new. The information from secret will have to be added. Ongoing.

5.4 - Informative - Task #355: Inventory of PPI members and pirates parties

Keith is working on a list and will send new spreadsheet.

Please see the spreadsheet and edit the number of representatives for countries that you know.

Again, we need to update our list of Pirate Parties and contacts within each PP. We need to set up a multiple contacts list, and then verify that list. Marie France and Keith will set up this contact list before the net meeting, as well as a draft email that we will show to the board before sending it for approval.

  • Work is ongoing. And where is the other part?

Internal deadline for sending out the invoices to our member: 15. November 2016, provided the information have been gathered.

-Guillaume: We could send out 2015 invoices now and then 2016 a bit later. This is more in line with PPI bylaws. -Keith: Membership fees will go out before the end of the year but they're not totally accurate.

       -next day or two

Members will be asked to correct their own estimated membership fees based on current correct information for number of representatives, members, and budget.

=== 5.5 - Informative - Task #356: Implementation of the Bitcoin payment system ===

-Keith will set up the email account and Guillaume will verify the details -bank account is basically empty, and awaiting on the bank transfers, but we have a little bit in the Paypal account -Guillaume and Keith will work this out after the meeting

5.8 Other ongoing projects

Proposal from Thomas: online general assembly in the spring? -Guillaume will set some proposed dates for this and we will work out the details with members.

-we have to have the proper tools to do this, which we have been working on and can probably finish in a reasonable amount of time. -this can be discussed again at a future meeting to figure out exact dates, etc.
