4 Encourage more people to join TDF and become member

 We may split this in parts:
- gather relevant data
- collect names from data
- happy to came up with a script for non-member developers (Miklos)
- Jan Iversen already has something/shared info before with the MC
- social media from Italo/Sophie (Bubli)
- translations -- talk to Cloph (Cor)
- also will complain about the missing out-of-the-box stats
- documentation (Bubli)
- QA -- talk to Xisco (Miklos)
- design -- talk to Heiko (Cor)
- contact the potential candidates
- when there is a list of candidates, put it here on the pad, so MC members can take the ones who they know
- April 13 -- please make progress in 3 weeks there and share on the list.
 Other ideas:
 - Mike will create a page with legal text explaining why to become a member.
- Cor will came up with something similar, but that can be parsed by a human.
- Page on website with short text and links to member interviews?
- Cor & Bubli also have a text that can be used as a template to invite somebody. Share on the list (Cor, Bubli)

4 Change in MC membership.

When Kendy, being elected for the Board of Directors with the recent elections, is going to accept that role, one of the MC-deputies has to become a full MC member. Klaus-Jürgen is willing to do this. All members present support that. Thanks to Klaus-Jürgen for taking this role and thanks to Kendy for his work in the MC!


5 The role of the MC member-on-duty.

We need a the MC member-on-duty the next quarter. Gabriele would like to help, but is afraid that he can't do it due to other work. Klaus-Jürgen is interested too. Agreed is that both work on setting up the local repo of the MCM-db and the mcm script the next week. And then have a meeting with Cor to look at what is needed, and at further questions. Andras will install mcm too. Info: https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/TDF/Membership_Committee_-Tasks-Work_flow-Working_with_mcm


6 Past elections for the BoD.
