In our most recent mins that we had a good review of outstanding f2f action
items <https://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Board_Meeting_2017-10-05>, one thing we
are missing is following up on our well attended, entertaining, annual
I am (CCing) the discussion list here as this is a fun update.
The main action item is to invite projects and committees who missed the
AGM to the next board meeting (Board Meeting 2017-11-02
<https://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Board_Meeting_2017-11-02>). Anita has also
identified this as an opportunity to start thinking about next years budget.
The slides are here:
We had reports from the board and core officers (or delegate):
- president: delegated to helena as vice-president
- elections - annual short term position
- Website/rebranding - temporary initiative
- GRASS GIS
- ORFEO ToolBox - welcome to new graduate!
- ZOO project - brought up external slides
*via incubation committee
Aside: t*here was some confusion for projects who had had a state-of talk
during the conference. The AGM update is focused on the project health and
happiness, rather than technology updates.*
- OSGeo Korean Chapter
- OSGeo Ireland
- D-A-Ch: FOSSGIS e.V.
- geo-spatial.org (OSGeo.RO)
- And more
- OSGeo Finland Chapter Report
- OSGeo Spanish Language Chapter
- OSGeo Africa
- OSGeo European
*Aside: There was a lot of friendly encouragement from
the European chapters considering considering bidding for FOSS4G 2019.*
*Note: Local chapter updates are the highlight of any AGM (and
inspirational). There is no expectation for a report from local chapters -
they do not have an officer representative in our organization. I think
this makes sense since they are regional in nature and need to have the
freedom to incorporate in accordance with local laws*.
- United Nations Committee
- Conference Committee
- OpenGeoScience Committee
- Marketing Committee
- Incubation Committee
- GSoC - is this a committee or initiative?
