- Membership - Erico was able to get a list of Zope Foundation mailing list, cross referenced with Plone Foundation membership
- id 55 people, 7 are active in Plone Foundation, 2 are on membership committee , 50 people are emeritus, 33 non members
- what are these 33 people doing now? we don't know
- convert these 33 into emeritus Plone Foundation members, they can write to us to get reinstated as active members. This seems like a good plan, low bar for entry, is doable. Topic for a 1 - 2 day sprint perhaps.
- Legal implications for fast tracking 33 (non-pf members) zope members into PF?
- No legal implications, membership committee approval, should probably have a formal written proposal to board
- should we actively pursue members of foundation who let their membership expire (now in emeritus), but are active in community or make a living working with Plone
- Paul may go thru emeritus list and check emails b/c holiday season, Erico may provide Paul technical assistance
- Money has not been transferred
- review ongoing
- Victor will attend Plone 6 kickoff sprint
- Volto 4 release
- Erico will touch base about plone [dot] de, will probably happen next week
- Fulvio - what does Plone membership mean - maybe we should have more transparency and awareness about this topic. What does being a foundation member do/what does it mean. This will require further discussion. Day to day - meritocracy, but fundamental changes should be guided by members.
Andy moved to adjourn, Chrissy seconded
