8 Other Business
- The board decided to postpone the voting for the Django: Under The Hood Conference sponsorship. Marc-Andre will contact the organizers for further info (ticket price, sponsor prospectus, better attendee count).
- The board decided to postpone the voting on python3-ldap development. Nick will reach out to the grantee for further info (commercial products were you hoping to test against, would it be sufficient to test against those, rather than specifically against the commercial products?, consideration of companies who offer free continuous integration services). Brian and Van will help with getting licenses needed for this project.
