The treasurer's report was accepted unanimously.
None this month.
New members are required to provide us a physical, signed copy of the application form; this can be by post or fax, Craig B to update the web pages to make this clear.
The form will be updated to include "effective under the laws of New Zealand" and ask for a username/password for the WLUG server.
There has been some complaint recently regarding the committee mailing list. We have decided to leave the list as it is and send a message to the society mailing list clarifying the reason for the existance of the list and the reason that we do not want discussion from the committee list happening on the main mailing list.
Non committee member postings will not be allowed onto the mailing list.
We will steer the meeting towards an "interesting external speakers" direction, with the eventual goal of attracting noted Linux luminaries to give presentations.
We will no longer push towards "teaching" at meetings; the support goal will be met through the mailing list, wiki, and IRC channel.
As a result of the discussions of tonights meeting Greig has decided not to resign from the WLUG committee.
Matt reports that community newspapers do not offer free advertising; Matt and Bruce are to approach reporters with an eye to having them cover the event.
Possible fundraising ideas:
Meeting closed at 9:32pm.
