RESOLVED: The Python Software Foundation accept the Python.org (http://Python.org) site redesign proposal set forth by Project Evolution / Revolution Systems and Divio with a budget not to exceed $70,000 in total without further board approval.
Possibly restructuring membership has been proposed. There are thoughts of a new membership model for the future of the PSF. Van L. will write up his new proposal for this restructuring.
It has been proposed that GSoC gets resource assistance. The PSF will find someone to help the current leader and possibly reenforce the leadership with a second person to help run things.
