{{MovedToTrac|PSC/Agenda}}
 
 
=== Open issues ===
 
 
 
* PSC: assign roles to the members
 
* Financial management: set up a non-profit entity
 
** Get in more http://grass.osgeo.org/donations/ - approach potential sponsors, develop sponsoring program
 
** Make use of flattr.com or other '''crowdfunding''' options (some [http://mail-pilot.com/blog/comparing-crowd-sourced-funding-platforms/ comparison])
 
* Find one or more persons to take care of [[Case studies]].
 
* CMS: add user quotes on first page why people use GRASS? Refresh start page
 
 
 
==== Motions ====
 
 
 
''These entries need a vote from the committee members.''
 
 
 
* RFC3: http://grass.osgeo.org/programming7/rfc3_psc.html (rewrite needed)
 
 
 
==== Discussions ====
 
 
 
''These entries do not need a formal vote.''
 
 
 
* License issues of translation support through [https://launchpad.net/products/grass6 Rosetta] - alternatively consider [http://pootle.wordforge.org/ pootle] (maybe on OSGeo infrastructure)
 
* discuss use of transifex for some languages
 
 
 
---------------
 
 
 
=== Resolved issues ===
 
 
 
* GRASS GIS - '''30th birthday upcoming'''! MN is in contact with Jim Westervelt to identify the "precise" date. So we want to celebrate that all over the globe :) And on other planets, too, since we support extraterrestrial coordinate systems.
 
** Prepare new promo material. Best would be to get designer(s) for it.
 
** Better populate the [http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=grass+gis GRASS GIS videos on YouTube] - make it a channel?
 
* Revisit the '''license of the Web pages''' and manual pages. It may be appropriate to change to a Creative Commons license which are widely accepted now.
 
* Moritz Lennert suggests: have some reflection on release strategy and notably '''GRASS 7 release'''. Maybe we could at least envisage some form of technology preview release that would allow us to where we stand.
 
* [[PSC election 2012]]
 
* [http://grass.osgeo.org/programming6/rfc1_psc.html RFC1: Project Steering Committee Guidelines]
 
* [http://grass.osgeo.org/programming6/rfc2_psc.html RFC2: Legal aspects of code contributions]
 
 
 
==== Motions ====
 
 
 
* [http://grass.osgeo.org/programming7/psc_motions.html PSC Motions]
 
 
 
==== Discussions ====
 
<strike>
 
* GRASS on koders.com: recommendation to do so. Now available [http://www.koders.com/info.aspx?c=ProjectInfo&pid=43B43LPYNXCC4K8PGELQYTZR5A here]
 
</strike>
 
 
 
* Add GRASS to Canonical's Rosetta translation project?
 
: Unresolved issue: a translation is a derivative and non-original work, and Canonical demands BSD-style copyright assignment of translations submitted through them (but not translations coming from the project). Could a translation back to english from one of those be a end-run around our copyright and the GPL?
 
:: Update 2007: It appears that Canonical changed their [https://launchpad.net/legal Terms of use] of Rosetta
