4.1 - Short report of the board members 1)

  • Board:
  • Guillaume: Nothing much apart of the interview with the 8th floor interview and videocast. Wikileaks issues has also taken up quite a lot of my time.
  • Bailey: not much to report, GA went well.
  • Andrew: nothing to report
  • Keith: not much beside what had been said at the oGA. In active contact with Japan about the probs betweem the two parties over there. A lot of talk with them about getting people volunteering with PPI, perhaps translating texts from PPI to Japanese. A small feature about me was made by one of their members on their FB page.
  • Koen: Participated in online GA, organised a small discussion inside PPBE about international delegation of PPBE. Still need ID cards or passport scans from most board members for Belgian Governement.
  • Raymond: Everything has happened. Too much to report. The activism part of our activities is going strong. I mention #freeBogatov and #OpFOQ. We also have few things in planning after being inspired at the online GA. Will be working with Bailey on two things. Social media poll, weekly and member meetings probably once a month.

nothing to report

Setting up the server

There were issues in the past with the setup of servers.


no timeline has been defined yet.


Guillaume states that IT assets shall remain under the control of PPI.
Services provided by that team themselves:
E-Mail, Etherpad, Friendica, Hosting (Shared-Server), Limesurvey, Mailman, Mattermost, Mediawiki, Mumble, Openmeetings, Openslides, Owncloud, OTRS, Piratenradio, Redmine, Sogo, Streaming, Wordpress
The root admins behind it are being asked if they want to help as they had set up a server for PPI some time ago. The team itself is happy to get further volunteers but will like to see fit that no noobies will take over responsible stuff. The intent is to take care of the servers which are hosted by PPI an a voluntary basis and to further the international stronghold between us pirate parties or else the movement. The prediscussion took some time. Since Thursday last week Thomas Gaul inquired to the team for support for PPI. Thomas is awaiting the final positive answer to any detail can be solved in time and for the best of all of us.

Bastian and Thomas agree to work to deliver the prerequisite and an outline of the service agreement in order to take care of the migration of the current application architecture to a new system architecture.
