= Minutes of the Foundation Board meeting for Tuesday, October 30th 2018, 15:30 UTC = Next meeting date Tuesday, 6th November 2018, 16:30 UTC == Attending == * AllanDay * CarlosSoriano * KatGerasimova * FedericoMenaQuintero * NeilMcGovern * RosannaYuen * PhilipChimento * RobMcQueen == Regrets == * NuritziSanchez == Agenda == * Red Hat acquisition (Philip) * Other business == Minutes == * Red Hat acquisition * Announcement of the acquisition of Red Hat by IBM was made over the weekend. * Neil doesn't know anything other than what has been reported in the press; looks like this should not have much of an effect on GNOME at this stage. Red Hat may be run as a unit within IBM; what happens in the future is of course unknown. * Philip: do you expect trouble retaining Red Hat as an advisory board member? * Neil: no, no reason why that should happen. * We discussed possible scenarios and came to the conclusion that it's best for the Foundation to wait and see what happens. It's good to have a diversity of companies paying people to work on GNOME, but that was also true before the acquisition. * Other business * Philip: Can we upload the 2018-2019 forecast that we approved during the hackfest, to the wiki? I'd like it to be in place before sending out last week's minutes. * Neil: People were planning to suggest some changes, are we not waiting for that? * Kat: My understanding was we were approving this forecast, and making changes later. * Rob: Agreed. We should also consistently refer to the budget as a forecast, since that's what we did during the hackfest. * Allan: Do people have changes they want to do to the budget? * Neil: Some people have spending ideas; to discuss whether that comes from reserves, or from another program. * Allan: We should discuss in the mailing list the changes that people want. * ACTION (Neil): Upload the forecast to the wiki, as approved during the Cambridge hackfest. * ACTION (Neil): Start a thread on board-list asking for everyone's spending ideas so we can flesh them out. == Actions == * Neil - Upload the forecast to the wiki, as approved during the Cambridge hackfest. * Neil - Start a thread on board-list asking for everyone's spending ideas so we can flesh them out.
