Hi everyone,

Last Monday, October 20, the Board participated in a two-hour phone meeting. The primary topics were next steps in DefCore and reviewing the process for selecting a new Platinum member, since we will have our first vacancy in 2015. During that meeting, the Board approved the following:

- Minutes from the September 18 board meeting: https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Governance/Foundation/18Sept2014BoardMinutes

- The new Platinum Member Selection Procedure submitted for review by the Membership Committee. The Board expects to hear several presentations from prospective Platinum and Gold Members at the next meeting happening November 2.

- A new framework proposed by the DefCore Committee and Foundation Staff that includes both platform and component level commercial trademark licensing programs. The framework allows the DefCore committee to propose new component level programs in the future, as well as update the technical requirements (core capabilities and designated sections) with each new version of the software. Initial programs will include Platform, Object Storage and a new Compute program. Under the new framework, the DefCore Committee plans to present the Havana Advisory Designated Sections for approval at the next meeting.

Our next Board meeting will happen in Paris, Sunday, November 2, starting at 9 am local time. It will be immediately followed by a joint Board / Technical Committee meeting starting at 2 pm. Any community members wishing to attend the meeting in person should check in at the OpenStack Summit Registration Information Desk at Palais des Congrès, in order to pick up a wristband to access the room in Level 2.
