3 - OPENING REMARKS/ANNOUNCEMENTS

3.1 - Pirate Party of the Week (proposed by Jerry)

No pirate party this weeks as I didn't get any answer. Sent out the questions to every PPI member. We should sent out questions to the other Pirate Parties, starting with Sweden (as they have elections). Questions for Sweden are prepared here: http://ppi.piratenpad.de/91
This week's Pirate Party will be Kazakhstan (translations are done by Dichter).

4 - AGENDA

4.1 - Update Calendar and Press release exchange (proposed by Jerry)

What is the status with the calendar and press release exchange website? Which sub-domain did we chose for the press release exchange? What are the next steps?
the Calendar is installed, but has some issues with the character encoding and categories. The cause is unclear and need some more time to get sorted out. (Steffen)
regarding the press exchange - Benjamin Stoecker (PP-DE) is going to set up the Pirates Without Borders Planet first, and then he will turn to ours.
Discussion on what sub-domain name to use with the press-release-planet:
prex
parrot +1+1+1+1
wire / hotwire +1+1
telegram/graph
press
bazaar
planet +1+1
moon +1
Mars / Venus / Saturn
Sandocan (it's a pirate)
px +1
bazar
world +1
universe +1+1+1
blackbeard
roger
bottle-messages +1
press corner
7seas +1
radar +1
the result is - we take http://parrot.pp-international.net


4.2 - Bank Account - conference refunds (proposed by Jerry/Gregory)

Nicco is not answering to our e-mails. We will sent one more and then call the bank to ask for a bank statement and try to deduce who was paid the conference refunds and continue with the payments of the refunds.

4.3 - New members who did not join at the first conference (proposed by Jakub)

We should go out and have conversations with potential members, who could join and ask them what it would take for them to apply (jakub)
we should not go out, but instead caring on producing value for the pirate parties (members and not members), so that a reason to join ppi would be obvious. (Jerry)
we keep pursuing our projects like calendar and press-release exchange and also plan a good conference, while maintaining contact to everyone, including potential candidates. (Gregory)

4.4 - Meeting times (proposed by Gregory)

Should we move to bi-weekly or change rules of procedures for quorum? (Gregory)
We should propose a change in the Rules of the Proposal before the next meeting: http://ppi.piratenpad.de/change-rop (Jerry)
