It was noted that the PirateWeb network is maintained by different Pirate Parties, not just PPSe (PPSe, PPFi and PPDe). PPI and PPs may not be able to depend on Freenode's administrators and may need a service not restricted by its ToS. It was noted that ideally PirateWeb would expand with servers hosted by other PPs, with a PPI link and control. is conotrolled by Rick ? (PPSe), although would be useful. Nicco agreed to contact the Pirateweb IRCOps regarding changing the system and the matter will be discussed at the next meeting.

It was noted that these addresses redirect to the ACTA Taskforce page on the wiki. It was decided to leave this matter to the ACTA taskforce and Steffen0.

4.8 - Status of PPI Manifesto - Proposed by ninHer.

It was noted that a "Pirate Constitution" would be preferred by some, or a "Declaration of Principles" similar to the Uppsala declaration, but that would need to be discussed with member PPs. It could be best to state what all PPs currently agree on and work from there, to help prevent the PPs spreading apart. However, no PP should be able to or attempt to enforce policy on any other.
