+18:20 <@NeddySeagoon> Elections project are seeing fair play
+18:20 <@NeddySeagoon> quantumsummers SFLC Monthly Update ... has anything changed ?
+18:21 <@quantumsummers> NeddySeagoon: i have submitted more things for them, but have the no change from last meeting
+18:22 <@NeddySeagoon> IS there anything we can do to help speed the process - should we look for more pro bono law support ?
+18:22 <@quantumsummers> I need to have a frank conversation with them, as the time it has taken is not cool
+18:23 <@NeddySeagoon> As long as they can give us a turn round time we cn live with and they meet it, thats fine. We would then know if we need more legal support
+18:23 <@NeddySeagoon> Canwe/Do we need to do anything ?
+18:24 <@quantumsummers> let me talk to them, and see what is up
+18:24 <@NeddySeagoon> ok
+18:24 <@quantumsummers> I'll do this onMonday, then
+18:25 <@quantumsummers> we can make choices via mail
+18:25 <@NeddySeagoon> You have a short Monday list this week then :)
+18:25 <@NeddySeagoon> yes
+18:25 <@quantumsummers> its a holiday here
+18:26 <@quantumsummers> as a side note, I think they may be experiencing funding crunch
+18:26 <@NeddySeagoon> Oh yeah - Presidents Day according to my Scientific American calendar
+18:26 <@quantumsummers> perhaps we should consider some donation to subsidize their costs a bit
+18:26 <@NeddySeagoon> Should we make a donation to the SFLC ?
+18:26 <@quantumsummers> they are trying to get someone with more time that our main contact will oversee
+18:27 <@quantumsummers> NeddySeagoon: after monday, lets talk via mail
+18:27 <@NeddySeagoon> ok. I am good with the idea of a donation
+18:27 <@quantumsummers> it would be a nice gesture
+18:27 <@NeddySeagoon> ok. I am good with the idea of a donation
+18:29 <@quantumsummers> I'll email around my list of outstanding items as well
+18:29 <@NeddySeagoon> Agenda Item 4 Bugs New FreeCAD & friends license Bug 35235
+18:29 < willikins> NeddySeagoon: "Gotmail broken because hotmail site changed"; Gentoo Linux, Applications; RESO, FIXE; g2boojum@g.o:net-mail@g.o
+18:29 <@quantumsummers> err
+18:29 <@robbat2> missing a digit
+18:29 <@NeddySeagoon> Thats whats in the agenda
+18:29 <@quantumsummers> bug 325435
+18:29 < willikins> quantumsummers: "app-misc/tracker does not index the content of OpenOffice documents"; Gentoo Linux, Applications; RESO, FIXE;
+18:29 <@quantumsummers> opps
+18:29 <@NeddySeagoon> Thanks
+18:30 <@quantumsummers>
+18:30 <@quantumsummers> fat fingrd
+18:30 <@robbat2> bug 352435
+18:30 < willikins> robbat2: "OpenCascade, FreeCAD and the surrounding license mess / Can we have this in tree?"; Gentoo Linux, Applications; NEW; dilfridge@g.o:trustees@g.o
+18:30 <@quantumsummers> 3rd times the charm
+18:31 <@NeddySeagoon> robbat2, do you have an opinion. From reading the bug, lots of people better then me have tried to unravel this and given up
+18:31 <@robbat2> in light of gentoo, I say we restrict the binpkgs and let people use it
+18:32 <@quantumsummers> do we even need to restrict mirroring?
+18:32 <@NeddySeagoon> Do we need to refer to SFLC ?
+18:32 <@quantumsummers> have already
+18:32 <@robbat2> yeah, RESTRICT="bindist mirror"
+18:33 <@quantumsummers> sounds fine to me
+18:33 <@quantumsummers> what are sci herd using for LICENSE?
+18:33 <@robbat2> "mirror" because otherwise we are party to clause #2
+18:33 <@NeddySeagoon> That looks safe anyway - until SFLC report back
+18:34 <@quantumsummers> I consider it safe, we are not distributing pkgs
+18:34 <@quantumsummers> binary packages, that is
+18:34 <@NeddySeagoon> quantumsummers, agreed.
+18:34 <@NeddySeagoon> nore the sources
+18:35 <@robbat2> at the point of RESTRICT="bindist mirror", we're only ever shipping ebuilds, and any linkage violation is on the end users system, where plenty of it exists already (eg nvidia binary drivers)
+18:35 <@NeddySeagoon> -e
+18:35 <@quantumsummers> robbat2: lets go with it
+18:35 <@NeddySeagoon> heh
+18:35 <@NeddySeagoon> lets go with that
+18:35 <@NeddySeagoon> Do we need a vote ?
+18:36 <@quantumsummers> nah, we all agree
+18:36 <@NeddySeagoon> Do we need a SFLC opinion ?
+18:36 <@quantumsummers> I hope to tender one
+18:36 <@NeddySeagoon> ok
+18:36 <@quantumsummers> but I do not believe so
+18:36 <@quantumsummers> that we need one
+18:36 <@NeddySeagoon> Should we remove it from their todo list ?
+18:37 <@quantumsummers> and post to the bug, yes
+18:37 <@NeddySeagoon> ok
+18:37 <@NeddySeagoon> Agenda Item 5 New Business ... there is none

+18:49 <@NeddySeagoon> I understand
+18:50 <@NeddySeagoon> robbat2, if you decide not to stand ... you might like to nominate another -infra person
