the board has decided on a change to the rules of procedure: https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/TDF/BoD_rules As per § 1, the proposed changes are hereby published to the members. Added text:

"With a view to ensuring that decisions can be made in the most timely way possible while still ensuring every director is empowered, the Board RESOLVES that:

  • Any motion supplied to all directors and/or adequately described on an agenda, in either case issued at least 4 days in advance of a properly constituted and quorate Board meeting, may be passed by a simple majority of those present at that meeting.
  • Any motion introduced or substantially changed after that point may be passed by the same simple majority but must be confirmed on the agenda of the next meeting or according to e-mail voting rules, and any non-reversible actions of the motion delayed until it is confirmed."

Change our travel policy at https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/TDF/Policies/Travel#Personal_Cars to read

Old: "The use of personal cars is permitted, if this is the most economic transportation. Using a personal car in any case needs a signed travel report, including kilometers travelled. TDF will refund 0.30€ per _distance_ kilometer."
New: "The use of personal cars is permitted, if this is the most economic transportation. Using a personal car in any case needs a signed travel report, including kilometers travelled. TDF will refund 0.30€ per _driven_ kilometer.
TDF asks everyone to use the most cost efficient end-to-end means of transport for yourself, team-mates and materials. When cheaper public transportation is available, it should be preferred. Transporting event materials or excessive transfer times might be reasons for exemption. If in any doubt, please get confirmation before travel."
Change: Pay 0,30 € per _driven_ instead of _distance_ kilometer, effectively doubling the rate. This is in line with the tax regulations, but we ask to use reasonable means of transportation to keep costs low.

the Board has taken a decision on the warrant for new bank accounts that we now make public in accordance with our statutes. The Board of Directors at the time of voting consists of 7 seat holders without deputies. In order to be quorate, the vote needs to have 1/2 of the Board of Directors members, which gives 4. A total of 6 Board of Directors members have participated in the vote. The vote is quorate. A quorum could be reached with a simple majority of 4 votes.

Proposal: For the newly created bank accounts, warrants will be issued for

  • Thorsten Behrens
  • Björn Michaelsen
  • Andreas Mantke
  • Eike Rathke
  • Florian Effenberger

with everyone allowed to act on their own, without a second warrant holder needed..

Screenshots for documentation, website and marketing should preferably be taken on GNU/Linux, but may also be taken on any other operating system.

The Steering Committee recommends a consistent visual appearance (e.g. theming and branding) for the screenshots taken on the selected operating system. It is up to the LibreOffice community how to achieve that consistency.
