Minutes of the November 2013 TAB meeting
This is an experimental page holding the November 7, 2013 TAB meeting minutes. We'll see how it goes.
Public minutes for the TAB meeting held 2013-11-07, 21:00 UTC
Present: Chris Mason
James Bottomley (chair)
Jonathan Corbet (recorder)
1: Election of new vice chair
Jon made the mistake of volunteering, was duly elected. A new election
will be held around April for both chair and vice chair.
2: James welcomed the new members to the committee.
3: 2014 Linux Plumbers Conference
The proposal submitted by Jes Sorensen was deemed to be the best of all
presented (there being no other proposals). James reminded the members
of the LPC web site that describes how proposals should look, found at
All seemed to agree that the proposal seemed strong and that the
committee should be able to get the job done.
Selection of TAB members to be a part of the committee: Greg had
volunteered via email ahead of time. Ric offered his help with the
storage/filesystem track, and with the committee as a whole if needed.
James also volunteered for this role.
Sarah noted that lightning talks were a part of the plan; she suggested
that we advise the committee to obtain slides ahead of time to avoid
the presentation of inappropriate material.
Those present voted unanimously to accept the proposal.
[UEFI discussions are held under NDA].
Ted noted that he has fallen behind on getting the meeting minutes onto
the web site, but that they all exist in the mailing list archive.
Those minutes will be prepared and posted. Jon will learn how to put up
the minutes so he can start falling behind on the task.
6: Change the meeting time?
Everybody present was happy with the current 21:00 UTC meeting time, but
few were happy with the invites in Moscow time. James will attempt to
post an item on a Google calendar; all committee members should send him
their Google IDs for access to this calendar.
