1) CVS access for package project
Daniel Ockeloen, project leader of the package project has been granted CVS access to place the package source in an MMBase application. The theme manager should be placed in the same mmbase application as the package software. It is up to the project leader to decide if the function code should be placed in the MMBase core or in the mmbase application itself. Rob Vermeulen will inform Daniel Ockeloen.

2) CVS access for field type project
Michiel Meeuwissen, project leader of the field types project has been granted CVS access. Pierre van Rooden will inform Michiel.

3) multicast
some organisations seem to have some problems related to multicast communication. The MMC has been asked how this problem could be handled. The opinion of the MMC is that this is a problem of some organisations and not an MMBase problem until it is clear that the problem is within MMBase. There were already some discussions about this on the developers list and solutions are already suggested.
It seemed that the foundation communicated this issue as a MMBase problem, and asked organisation to join efforts to solve this. We share the opinion that the foundation could beter first refer itself to the MMC before mobilizing organisations with to solve problems. In this case the MMC can inform the foundation if the problem is organization related or really an MMBase problem.

4) MMC Documentation
This still is work in progress. There are already some documents finished, these documents are placed in CVS.

5) Community list
Already 36 organisations subscribed themselves on the community list. We will soon post some messages to this list. The foundation could not provide us with the contact information of its partners. But fortunately the foundation itself will inform these partner next week.

6) MMBase 1.8, optimizing project
Rob van Maris announced during the developers meeting that he would like to manage this project if he would have sufficient time. This is unfortunately not the case and we will have to find a project manager for this project. Rob will address the developers list for a new project manager, later on he will address the community list. Pierre will make a list of all tasks that have to be done within the project.

7) Maintenance MMBase.org
Next monday / thursday (20/21 sept.) Rico will install the new MMBase machines. Rob Vermeulen will start helping Rico with coordination of the maintenance of the applications that will run on these machine. We already heard that community members are willing to help with this. Rob will coordinate this in such a way we will have maintainers for all application running on the mmbase machines.

8) Free software bazaar
Gerard van Enk and Daniel Ockeloen are going to present MMBase at the Free software bazaar.
