**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][2]. There was discussion on the vote counting algorithm ([STV][3]) 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][4] 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][5] and [what the council does][6].
    * 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 Foundation.

**Action Items:**

  * N/A
