Sugar Labs status
- SF Conservancy Sugar Labs/SFC Fiscal Agreement
- We await feedback from the SFC and OLPC, but there was consensus that it is an adequate expression of the needs of Sugar Labs.
- There was consensus that we have made sufficient outreach to the community that the initial list is a fair representation of Sugar Labs; we look forward to having the Membership Committee take it from here.
- There was consensus that Walter would put together a strawman election process based upon the Selectricity tool. We are targeting an August election.
- There was consensus that we begin with just Oversight and Members committees.
- We agreed for the need to solicit more feedback in the wiki for the design direction being proposed by Luca.
- We agreed that further discussions with the SFLA about the merits of trademark protection is needed.
- Linux 
- We agreed on the desirability of Sugar Labs participation at conferences around the world, but hope to meet the need by utilizing locals to whatever extent possible. We also discussed the desirability to have a meeting of Sugar Labs developers a couple of times per year. We discussed the possibility of an on-line meeting that leverages resources above and beyond IRC.
- Education 
- We agreed on the necessity of Sugar Labs participation in the learning community, but don't yet have a good handle on the best and most efficient means of accomplishing this.
- We briefly reviewed the current situation and will solicit a report from the ad hoc infrastructure committee for next week's continuation of the discussion.
- We adjourned after agreeing to reconvene on the 25 July.
