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.
