I’m not sure if the final component 2 payment has been made as I haven’t received a bill for that. Are there outstanding bills from GetInteractive that haven’t been sent? We don’t having anything pending right now.

Thanks Helena that is great, I will be sure to review and catch up; and I see some of the actual expenses being added to the https://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/OSGeo_Budget_2017 wiki page.


Reviewing quickly - shows projects did much better this year at using allocated budget.


2017 Board:

- 15k budget, 6k spent = 40%

2017 Committees

- 57k max budget (actually 50k because travel grant matching), 18k spent = 32%


- 18k budget, 15k spent = 80%

Website initiative:

- 30k budget, 5k marketing, 5k sponsors = 102% (actually closer as sponsorship exceeded target). Question we still have the final component 2 payment or has that been made?

thanks for the reminder, jitsi seems to work for me. Can you please remind us all about the time of the meeting - I am now in Europe and don't want to miss it by mixing up the time.


Also, I have updated the 2018 budget requests wiki with some of the requests sent through emails - it would be useful if everybody familiarized themselves with it so that we can have a productive discussion. Most requests should have details provided in comments or in linked wiki page.



Michael, if possible, can you please add the actual numbers for 2017?


If anybody sees a missed item please add it, I am not sure I captured everything that was sent through emails.


Thank you all and talk to you tomorrow (I assume we are meeting in afternoon central europe time)

This is a reminder that tomorrow we have a meeting.

Nobody has said anything about the platform for the videocall. I propose jitsi because it allows other people to join us freely without losing the control of who speaks. We can even live stream the meeting or share later in youtube (don't know about other platforms). It can share screen (something which skype doesn't) or share a text pad (we can collaboratively help in the minutes making). And it is FOSS. If we like this a lot, we can even install our own server to have completely privacy.

So, my proposal is: please, try before the meeting https://meet.jit.si/FOSS4G It should work on all major browsers (something which Google hangouts doesn't).


Tomorrow we can start there and on irc at the same time, so if we have problems, we can fail back to Google Hangouts, Skype, irc or whatever.
