Hi everyone.

A quick update from my side regarding the Base Design WG:

  - My proposed committee was approved by FESCO last Wednesday. One 
negative vote came from Stephen Gallagher that he would have very much 
preferred to have Lennart instead of Harald or Josh on the committee.

  - IRC meeting time. I've set up a http://whenisgood.net/fimbxij/ event 
where every committee member has now responded. The current best time 
slots would be Monday 19:00 UTC or Friday 15:00 UTC. At both times only 
Jon Disnard wouldn't be able to join, so i'll follow up with him 
personally to see if he could make it to one of them somehow. The 2nd 
best options would be Friday 14:00 UTC or Friday 17:00 UTC. For the 
former Bill Nottingham and Jon Disnard wouldn't be able to join, for the 
later Jaroslav Reznik and Bill Nottingham.
    For this week to get things underway i'll propose to use the Friday 
15:00 UTC timeslot as an initial meeting time where we can discuss the 
first important topics and tasks the committee needs to work on
   And to reiterate one point: EVERYONE is invited to join these 
meetings and participate in the discussions there. Just because you are 
not a committee member doesn't mean you can voice your ideas, comments, 
questions, concerns or thoughts during the meetings. This will make a 
difference and can only make a difference if you do so.

  - The main topics for the meeting agenda from my side will be:
    o Governance discussion & draft (Proposal: Review other WGs 
governance drafts & create our own based on those)
    o Regular meeting times (stay with Friday 15:00 PM or move somewhere 
    o Base mailing list discussion (yes/no, pros/cons)
    o QE representation discussion (who, how, status, etc)
    o Role of Base Design group discussion ->
    o Start of collecting ideas for Base Design. Proposal: Use wiki
      Maybe something like a mission statement first that relates to the 
idea that the Base Design is the platform for all other direct Fedora 
products (there can potentially be other separate products based on our 
original products or others consuming Base in the future).

Thats it for now.

Thanks everyone!

Regards, Phil
