Well done for posting that, with the timezones too.

I'm hoping that the following issues can be simply voted on at the

5. Outstanding minutes (David Graham)
+ October 5th, 2004
6. Resolution 2004-10-15.iwj.1: Efficient Board Meetings (Ian Jackson)
- Amendment 2004-10-18.dbg.1 (David Graham)
7. Resolution 2004-10-15.dbg.1: Non-meeting voting (David Graham)
8. Resolution 2004-10-16.dbg.1: Committee Framework (David Graham)
9. Resolution 2004-10-28.dbg.1: Treasurer's Budget (David Graham)

There has been discussion on the lists of most of these. I will send
a separate mail to restate/clarify my positions on them.

The following issues should be deferred and therefore removed from the

10. Resolution 2004-11-08.iwj.1: GNUstep as Associated Project
(Ian Jackson) -- deferred

I haven't received any reply from the FSF yet, so we should
postpone this as previously discussed.

11. New project request: OpenC++ (unclaimed)

There has been little preparation on this item despite an imprecation
to the `entire board' in last week's reading to do some homework.
Speaking personally, I'm still waiting for a reply to my (rather
late) question to the OpenC++ developers.

There is no motion ready for this, so it should be deferred.

I also note the following items:

3. President's update (John Goerzen)
4. Treasurer's report (Jimmy Kaplowitz)

I'm disappointed that these reports aren't ready to read now. I think
these items should be deferred until the next meeting, as it is now
too late for the Board to properly consider any report that might be
made at this late stage. (I'm assuming that there is no need to make
a decision needs to be made on some urgent matter.)
