Good (UGT) Morning,
I'm currently on UTC+11 but will be UTC+10 from the 7th April at 02:00,
which is 6th April for those behind the times.
I believe Eion will also -1 UTC offset on the same date but a couple
hours before me (UTC+12 to +11) he is so clever.
As for actual time, barring unforeseen circumstances I'm 'best'
available between 23:00 UTC and 08:00 UTC before the 7th, remember 6th
for most readers, and 00:00 UTC and 09:00 UTC after.
As for agenda...

Hi, I'm new to the board. Please refresh my memory ;)

I'm prepared to need my memory refreshed again (see previous) next year.

I think there's two things here. One, an amount of money for a hacker's
work for a period of time and the second selecting another party
(individual or group) as the recipient of such along with what amount of
time. I want to be clear I'm not opposed to either idea, nor John's
original on principal. Just think it's possibly two agenda items. By
splitting it in two I believe it will enable Board Members to discuss
and contribute to the proposal of disbursement, and then excuse
themselves from selection process on any possible conflict grounds (ie,
they'd like to do the hacking), rather than have the Board Member stand
out the entire procedure. I'd be happy to propose such a two staged
approach to disbursement.
. I'd like to propose IMF disburse $5,000 to a party (individual or
group) to work time on Pidgin, Adium, and libpurple for a month.
. I'd like to propose this year that as soon as practical the IMF
disburses the monies from the previous proposal to Gary, for the
purposes of 'work(ing) full time* Pidgin, Adium, and libpurple for a month.'
*I have very little comprehension of what defines 'work' and 'full time'
in the US context. I'm not too sure what is being proposed qualifies as
work in my country, and use of the phrase full time would endow the
recipient with other legal entitlements. I must defer some judgment to
my US board member peers, so if anyone can provide me (better yet, maybe
this list?) examples of how this works in similar US based hacker
groups, it'd be appreciated. Don't mean to be a pain, just being dutiful
as an IMF board member n stuff.
Catch you (UGT) later,
