But as all of you are probably dying to know what happened during the GA, I'm now posting a very brief summary of the discussions and decisions.
- The database group has been very successful in cleaning up suspicious users. The group would welcome additional Finnish investigators.
- The development group is looking for additional programmers fluent in PHP. Any candidates for this should be in contact with avij, until Nerzhul returns from his trip and can continue leading the WG.
- The communication group described their activities (newsletters sent to the members, news items posted on the webpage, handling of press articles mentioning EBT etc). Most of the activities in the comm WG are handled by a small group of people, and it was requested that more people would get involved in the activities of this WG.
- The tech group reported that the contract for web hosting has been made. There was some downtime during the last year, caused by one database incident and various shorter network-related problems at the ISP. The tech group is working on implementing a ticket system for support mail.
Phaseolus presented the financial report of the association. The GA accepted the report and the activities of the BoD during the fiscal year mid-2008 to mid-2009.
It was determined that according to the official French statutes, the propositions for changing the statutes must be published at least one month in advance. As the propositions were published on the forum just a few days before the GA, no decision about the statutes could be made. The meeting then proceeded to discuss the proposed changes.
