Sorry, didn't have the time to look at it, yesterday.
Just one remark from my side:
4. Participation "Salon des Mandataires" (18 & 19 Feb 2016)
"These kind of events could indeed be interesting to attend and to
promote OSGeo Belgium, but this event in particular is more focused on
French part of Belgium (not Flemish) and also very political. So perhaps
not that interesting to participate in this one."
I don't think that the reason invoked for not participating was its
political nature, nor that it is only for Wallonia. I think that in this
country we will always be confronted with events that only target part
of the country. The main reason for me was lack of resources and
the fear of being a bit lost amongst Glutton cleaners, heavy
construction machinery and busses. I would actually say that the
presence of politicians could be a good motivation for going in view of
our lobbying mission.

Ideally all minutes should go as a page to the OSGEO Wiki:
Once you've created an account and logged in, just call a URL such as
and edit the page.
You can look at
for an example.
However, I think that we should be pragmatic and that posting a text
processing document is fine as well. Just maybe we should use a real
open standard format such as .odt ? ;-)
