Topic  (Inaugural meeting of the new Maemo Council 2Q/2014):
   - The meeting started at 20:01 UTC. The new council assembled, and 
juiceme welcomed the new members.
   - The election results can be seen on the voting page 
(http://maemo.org/vote/results.php?election_id=37). There was discussion 
on the vote counting algorithm (STV: 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Single_Transferable_Vote_%28STV%29) and the 
number of ballots cast in the election.
   - The council decided to continue the present practice of having 
weekly meetings on tuesdays at 20:00 UTC. All council members live on 
UTC, UTC+1, UTC+2 zones.
   - There was some discussion of the roles in the Council. After 
discussion nieldk proposed peterleinchen as Chair & Secretary and 
juiceme seconded the motion. The vote was unanimous (4/4) and 
peterleinchen accepted the position.

Topic  (Discussion on Council work media):
   - There was discussion on how to handle the tasks and documents during 
council work; possibilities are to use piratepad or wikipage on Maemo 
for collaboration. The advantage of piratepad would be easy multiediting 
capabilities, on the other hand wiki is more secure.
   - The council voted to use a wiki page as work medium but as wiki 
cannot be set up as private, email ans piratepad are kept as alternative 
for in-progress/confidental work.
   - Sixwheeledbeast set up a wiki page for Council agenda. 

Topic  (Comments by DocScrutinizer05):
   - Joerg came on the IRC channel later when the meeting was over, 
having been taken ill, but he had the following comments;
       - The Council has only one set of rules which define what the 
council is and what the council does. 
       - The Council is not subject to directives from any other body.
       - Council work is generally done in the public, unless mandated by 
specific necessity. For confidental work there is the council members 
mailing list.
       - Since Hildon Foundation has accepted the Maemo Council as its 
Council, the Maemo Council is also the Council of the new unified Maemo 
e.V. that is going to take over the responsibilities of Hildon 

Action Items:
