If you put your ?def into jibot, it makes introductions go a LOT faster. If you have no idea what this means, we'll explain in the meeting :)
SFC Alumni organization
Gavin wants to start an organization for SFC alumni (people who are no longer students. He would like help. What resources can/should we give to this project (web space, mailing lists, etc)?
I'm sure Gavin will have more to say about this.
Gavin is the SFC contact for SPARC. We should assign somebody to be the SPARC contact for SFC, so he knows who to talk to when the two orgs want to work together!
FTP dump site
How's it going? Are people uploading? How can we better organize it/make it more useful?
How separate should the Volunteers be from the Core Team? The bylaws clearly state who will have voting power on the Core Team, and there will be a number of people who are interested in volunteering for SFC who clearly cannot have decision-making power. Does that mean the Volunteers should be able to meet at a different time instead of immediately after the Core Team? Should they have a separate mailing list, or hang out on the Core Team list even if they can't vote? Which is worse, information fragmentation or confusion between the two groups?
What didn't we get to cover this meeting that should be placed on the agenda for next meeting? (This is a good way to make these agendas more participatory.)
Volunteer until everyone leaves!
Actually get work done instead of just talking about it.

Nelson notes that the minimal attendance might be a product of poor advertising
- Gavin wants to get the ball rolling
- let people know about it
- Web resources
- mailing list
