Directors Present:

Martijn Faassen Rob Page Eric Casteleijn Jens Vagelpohl Jodok Batlogg

Rob carries Jim's proxy, which is on file.

Quorum Present: Yes

The chairman calls the meeting to order at 13h05m UTC.


The agenda is accepted as follows:

  • Bylaws: review of newest bylaws
  • Bylaws: acceptance by the board
  • Bylaws: adoption procedure, annual meeting
  • Adjournment

Bylaws: review of newest bylaws

After the recent hiatus it is not immediately clear what the status of the new bylaws is. The most recent version is determined, attached as appendix to these minutes. It was briefly discussed on the mailing list, and the participants in that discussion were of the opinion that details of the voting procedure should probably be kept out of the bylaws themselves.

Bylaws: acceptance by the board

Rob moves that the board recommend the discussed version of the bylaws (as attached in appendix) to the general membership. Jens seconds the motion.

The motion is carried unanimously. (Rob carries Jim's proxy, Tres votes in absentio by mail.)

Bylaws: adoption procedure, annual meeting

The General meeting is planned for December 12, 17:00 UTC. The secretary will divide up the membership list between the directors, and they will retrieve the current email addresses for the part of the list assigned to them, contact the members in question, and try to persuade them to attend the meeting or to give off their proxy to someone who will attend.

The secretary will also send a proxy form to the other directors.


The next ZF BoD meeting is scheduled for Monday, 2008-10-29 14:00 UTC

The chairman adjourns the meeting at 13h57m UTC.

These minutes were written by the secretary, Eric, according to the notes taken during the meeting.

These minutes were posted to the [email protected] mailing list and approved by all directors on 2008-11-03.

The Chairman bid the Secretary keep these minutes on file.
