Meeting opened at 7:47.
Present: Daniel, Craig B, Craig M, Greig, Phil, John, Matt, Jamie, Perry
Motion: that the minutes are a true and accurate record of the previous meeting
The WLUG should look towards donating a copy of RUTE or some recent Linux distributions to the Hamilton Public Library, as they have a lack of books on Linux.
Daniel will chase up GLUE and LJ again.
Motion: that Phil Murray be designated the WLUG librarian and that the location of the library be Open2View.com's offices on 2 Grey St
Motion: that the loan period for library items be 2 weeks, renewable for second period if the item has not been reserved by another user.
Perry will look into setting up a LDAP database on Hoiho and authenticating users out of it, and also install Mailman for subcommittee mailing lists.
Motion: that the WLUG committee can set up subcommittees for specific tasks. These must be headed by a committee member, who is the only person from that subcommittee authorised to communicate on behalf of the WLUG. The chair is responsible for inviting members to join and for reporting from the subcommittee back to the main WLUG committee.
If you want to set up a specific subcommittee and want WLUG to help you, contact the committee.
If the Linux Server project gets active again, a formal subcommittee can be formed.
Motion: that WLUG public meetings start at 7pm, instead of 7:30pm, during winter (NZST)
The meeting reminder bot should be fixed - Perry will ask Bruce if the bot can be moved to Hoiho and also be set to notify the lists of committee meetings.
CraigMckenna will prepare accounts for our funding requets.
Sky City funding is available; we intend to submit two applications
Daniel and Craig will coordinate to have these forms completed by 30 October.
Bank account number should be put on the membership form. The number should also be available on a secure page on the new secure.wlug.org.nz host.
The Wiki admin password should not be in a world readable config file.
There should be aliases on Hoiho for the Treasurer and the President if there are not already.
Motion: that we authorize Jamie Curtis to purchase a SSL certificate for secure.wlug.org.nz at the price of $35US
Matt Brown will draft a letter for Computer Upgrades 2000 thanking them for their support and asking if we can have control of the domain to ease administration for things like SSL certificates.
We have been made aware that we are required under the Incorporated Societies Act 1908 to include peoples occupations in our database. Craig will chase these up as membership forms are entered into the database.
John will organise a GPG keysigning at the next meeting.
