Last Thursday, the Board of Directors had a teleconference meeting. The agenda was posted online https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Governance/Foundation/17Nov2016BoardMeeting <https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Governance/Foundation/17Nov2016BoardMeeting>

The first portion of the meeting was an executive session to finish discussing the Gold Member applications that were unable to be reviewed at the meeting before Barcelona. After the executive session ended, the Board voted in open session to add 3 additional Gold Members, all global companies based in China: China Telecom, ZTE and Inspur. The addition of these 3 companies fills up all available Gold Member spots. Some directors expressed an interest in expanding the number of available slots. If you are interested in participating in that discussion, Shane Wang started a discussion thread on the Foundation mailing list on the topic.

Next the User Committee gave an update on the work they have been doing to create elected positions voted on by AUC members. They expect to present again at the December Board meeting.

Finally, the Board used the remaining time to talk about several strategic issues impacting OpenStack. Toby Ford started the discussion off with some thoughts on items that he sees as a large OpenStack operator around scaling OpenStack environments up and down, and also additional technology options that will be important in the future. The discussion was very lively and something that clearly needed more time and effort to cover. Board members agreed to start to document and collect their thoughts and to revisit the topic again in upcoming Board meetings.
