*Absent: *

*Summary of topics (ordered by discussion):*

   - Election system
   - eV: bank account
   - maemo trademarks

*Topic (Election system): *

   - MentalistTraceur hasn't looked into the PHP code for elections
   <https://toosa.swagman.org/svn/maemo_elections>, yet.
   - juiceme is looking into change in authentication required for personal
   voting links to work.
   - juiceme: sending mail to just GA is possible with a bit of tweaking.
   For now, it could be a specific user table containing just the current GA
   members, to be used as input for the voting engine.
   In the future, a flag in the midgard_users table, to indicate whether
   the user is GA member or not, would be preferable...
   Chemist will ask merlin1991 (garage admin) about the group options in
   garage for the MCeV.
   - The modifications can be seen at:
   svn diff https://toosa.swagman.org/svn/maemo_elections@r3
   Now keep in mind that juiceme *has* *not* *tested* *this* at all, he
   just wrote it like it *should* work
   - According to BGB (German <http://www.gesetze-im-internet.de/bgb/>,
   English <http://www.gesetze-im-internet.de/englisch_bgb/index.html>),
   the only minimum is 1 EU-director.
   According to Bylaws <http://wiki.maemo.org/MaemoCommunity_eV#Bylaws>,
   there should be at least 3 EU-directors (at least 21 years of age, EU
   residents or citizens).

*Topic (eV: bank account): *

   - Chemist needs a slot in his schedule free where the bank has actual
   working hours... the accountant was busy with being off work for all
   occasions chemist could free up so far - after that we have a bank account
   for MCeV (Thursday or next week).
   - About donations: MCeV will accept bitcoin as soon as we get it sorted!
   - We need to pester the US members of Hildon Foundation to do the tax
   declaration, Win7Mac has had several attempts with no response...
   - Complete history <http://hildonfoundation.org/supporters/> of
   transactions (donations and expenses) from past to present would be nice...

*Topic (maemo trademarks): *

   - Maemo Council will publish the announcement about Maemo trademarks
   registration-renewal on TMO, after chemist is back with a bank account
   The announcement will likely be published in the same way as meeting
   minutes are: at maemo.org <http://maemo.org/community/council/>, at
   talk.maemo.org <http://talk.maemo.org/forumdisplay.php?f=16>, and at
   <https://lists.maemo.org/mailman/listinfo/maemo-community> mailing list.
