19:30 cotto hello
19:30 benabik hi
19:30 alvis hello
19:30 Util Hello
19:31 tadzik hello
19:32 cotto How's this week been?  I'm cutting the release now, so it shouldn't be too long before it's out.
19:32 cotto We need release managers for most of 2012.
19:33 NotFound Hola
19:34 alvis cotto: I'm willing to help out; maybe for February?
19:34 cotto alvis, great
19:34 cotto it's quite straightforward
19:35 cotto alvis, let me add you after the release goes out.
19:36 alvis cotto: Sure.
19:36 Coke q1q
19:36 cotto Coke, go ahead
19:36 Coke (multi part) what's up with the foundation? Aren't we several months behind on elections? Will this impact our tax status?
19:38 tadzik q1q
19:38 cotto Coke, good question.
19:38 cotto The elections are overdue.
19:39 cotto I'm not certain how it impacts our tax status, but it's not likely to be what we want.
19:40 cotto If anyone can run an election, we should get a volunteer.  If it has to be someone with a certain role, we need one of those.
19:40 Coke Hokay.
19:40 Coke that was to your informative repsonse, not your request to volunteer.
19:40 cotto dukeleto and I would like to get us under SFLC's umbrella
19:41 cotto but there are some complications preventing that atm
19:41 alvis qlq
19:41 cotto er, SCF
19:41 cotto SFC
19:41 cotto maybe I shouldn't be typing today
19:42 cotto http://sfconservancy.org/ <-them
19:42 cotto I'll look into it this week.  We need to get that straightened out.
19:43 cotto Coke++
19:43 cotto alvis, go ahead
19:43 alvis you answered it.
19:45 Coke cotto: allison in the past mentioned apache as another umbrella org.
19:45 tadzik can I?
19:45 cotto Coke, a nice thing about sfc is that they're much less rigid about the structure of a project
19:46 cotto As we get closer to being able to put ourselves under an umbrella org, I'll make sure that we find the best fit.
19:48 cotto tadzik, go ahead
19:49 cotto did you have a question?
19:51 tadzik aye
19:51 tadzik what is the state of m0/lorito, and how (if) can I help?
19:54 cotto There hasn't been any progress on it recently.  I'm blocking on figuring out an overall plan that will a) get us from today's Parrot to an M0-based parrot and b) provide a meaningful level of compatibilty throughout the process
19:56 cotto if M0 can get translated to C, that gets us partly there,  but I'm also concerned about speep
19:56 cotto *speed
19:59 cotto so, it's tricky
20:02 cotto GOAL 1: find what's needed to run an election, get one started
20:02 cotto so the goals for this week:
20:03 cotto (reverse those last two) ;)
20:06 cotto any other questions?
20:06 alvis Not a question, but ...
20:07 alvis I'm, somewhat grudgingly, but still willing to help out on some of the legal stuff, if you need. (oughtta make some use of the law degree :)
20:08 cotto alvis, I don't know of anyone who gets excited about it.
20:08 alvis cotto: too true! :)
20:08 cotto the offer is much appreciated.  I will certainly let you know if something comes up that you could help with.
20:09 cotto the beauty of an umbrella org is that they let us hackers hack instead of dealing with the legal stuff
20:10 alvis cotto: ahh, 'k
20:13 cotto any other questions?
20:17 cotto Let's call it a wrap.
