Today the OpenStack Foundation Board of Directors held a short teleconference meeting. The agenda was posted on the wiki beforehand. We switched to a new conferencing tool for this meeting and the normal meeting notification was not sent out to this Foundation mailing list ahead of time because of that. I apologize for that oversight, and we’ll correct it going forward.
During the meeting, the Board approved the meeting minutes from the November 12 session in Berlin. Next, I presented a proposed budget for OSF for 2019. After questions and a discussion, the Board voted to approve the budget proposal.
Finally, Allison Randal gave an update on the formation of a work effort among a subset of Board members to draft guidelines for confirming pilot projects as full open infrastructure projects of the Foundation. This discussion is just getting started, and there is an etherpad that Allison created to gather feedback from anyone who has input. The goal is to come up with a set of points that the Board can use when reviewing pilot projects for confirmation. Some of these kinds of items have been discussed at a very high-level at previous Board meetings, including the September 18th meeting (starting around slide 38).
