Additional questions/remarks:

  • What do you do for press cliping? Software? Keywords?
  • I heard at the conference there was a project that provided mailing lists (we're on google groups ATM). Could you point me to that?
  • If someone could, temporarily provide us with our own chatroom on a mumble server so we can start using it. That would be great.
  • -->Mumble channel had been created (
  • Any other software the pirate parties are using i should be aware of?

(see your e-mails for details)

Discrete story.

22 Transparent bank account (proposed by Marcel)

Proposal: In order to fulfill the decision of the GA, the CFO is responsible for manual publishing all income and outcome items of the PPI bank account on as soon as they appear on the PPI bank account. This is a workaround. In order to find a final solution, the CFO is responsible for performing a search for a fully transparent bank account. The PP-CZ bank account is an example of such an account: The CFO will report to the PPI board on his investigation in no later than one month.

NGOs: La Quadrature du Net, EDRI, ORG, EFF, Communia, FFII
