Re: AGM 2017 invitation - Sat 2017-02-11 18:00, Bern


Sorry for the late reply, I have been quite busy lately.

I won't be able to attend the meeting, I got sick a few days ago and I got a terrible bronchitis.
So I thing it's a lot better for you and me that I don't come !

** Treasurer (Philipp Hug)
  - The financial statement is presented by Philipp and will be attached to these minutes.
  - There are pending EUR cash transactions from Philipp and Daniel that will be converted to
    Swiss francs and put on the debian.ch Postfinance account. They will be in the 2016 accounts.
  - We consider that the missing cash from the FOSDEM 2013 sales went to another trusted
    organization and remove it from our accounting as debitor loss.
  Agreed:  4
  Abstain: 1

* Discharge of the Board
  Agreed:  5

* Varia
  - Informal discussion about bylaw changes (to be voted at the next AGM):
    - Purpose (2.2), limited to .ch and .li should be changed to:
      "The Association holds assets on behalf of the Debian Project."
      The present members are in favour of this change.
    - Drop article 4 about sponsors and patrons because this does not belong to
      the bylaws. The board may just decide about this.
      The present members are in favour of this change.
    - We currently don't check if the current members are still interested in the
      association. We will start a discussion on the list if this is actually a
      problem and we currently see 2 ways to solve this, either a small (~5 CHF)
      membership fee or an annual ping.
    - 5.3 change to "A member can leave the Association at his own request at any time."

  - The invitation for the AGM should be sent at least 1 month in advance. We will try
    to improve this next year.
