  •  Walter as the board representative
    1. My plan is to create a cross LFN wiki site to collect information, suggestions, feedback from the projects, as well as to convey the Board related and appropriate information to the project committers.
    2. My suggestion would be to have a regular (say once in a quarter or at least 6 months) an open Board meeting (like we did for AI).
    3. I think, we will need to raise a proposal for the Board to assist in seeking more resources and other (what?) support for the LFN activities.
    4. In my view, Board could influence LFN bodies to help in better marketing the projects and the committers’ efforts.  Any good ideas how?
    5. Perhaps IT support issues if we think that they should be improved.
  1. In 2024, there will be no Release Managers for any LFN projects.

  5. The Board will expect a report on each project activities (for the Board project review meeting on 16/01/2024).
    1. A: Sandra Jackson to run a report on Anuket contributors and commit report
  6. LFN Budget has NOT been approved as of yet.  Request for more funds for marketing for CNF and other projects.
