Hi everyone,

not minutes of an "official" meeting, whatever that might mean right
now. Just my sketchy notes of what Myself, Ciaran, Malcolm and Mel
discussed when we met in Benshaws for a few pints last week:

  * We should press on with IFSO using a committee off 4 for
    now. It doesn't seem like we're getting more volunteers in the
    short term.
  * We mentioned that it would be useful to talk to a lawyer or
    solicitor who had some understanding of/interest in Free
    Software. Ciaran thought he might know of somebody.
  * What is represented at http://www.wsis-pct.org ? It looks
    interesting (link via Ciaran, again).
  * We should move forward with the IFSO web site ASAP.
  * Related - does anybody have any talent/know anybody with any
    talent who could do a logo? Malcolm suggested a GNU playing a
    harp (which I must say I like, personally).
  * The next official meeting will be on December 11th, and if we have
    not signed the paperwork for IFSO by then we will do it at that
  * The key active issues at the moment are Euro-swpatents and the
    Irish EUCD implementation. We should also be considering some work
    on Free Software advocacy (as well as defence) - for instance,
    trying to promote the use of Free Software in charities. There was
    a sense that IFSO should be working on that as well as the
    political advocacy.

Anybody want to add or correct anything?
