Dear Geoff,

Thank you for your hard work on requesting the Chapter mailing list and for
serving as Chapter Contact.  I hope you will conduct the business within
reason and evidence.

As for articles of incorporation and bylaws, we should adopt the Chapter
Committee's recommendation and Roberts Rules of Order, respectively,
coonducting meetings on IRC.  Will you ask the Chapter Committee, please,
whether they recommend copying the Foundation's Articles of Incorporation,
and so send along a copy of them if they have them?

As for projects, I know the Google Summer of Code applications with positive
evaluations which did not get approved because the Foundation did not
request a sufficient number of slots are excellent projects for us to
attempt.  I also think we should try to make better price/performance
Mediawiki servers than the German chapter has been able, as a long-term
hardware project goal.

Discussion? Please reply and forward to the new list.

James Salsman
