In an attempt to sort out a proper society in order to have a bank
account and appropriate protections for the funds and assets of the
NetSurf Project, we have written a draft constitution and I have
determined the list of eligible members as per point 2 to be:
- Adam Blokus
- Adrian Lees
- James Bursa
- Chris Young
- Daniel Silverstone
- Sean Fox
- John-Mark Bell
- John Tytgat
- James Shaw
- Mike Lester
- François Revol
- Rob Kendrick
- Andy Sidwell
- Michael Drake
- Vincent Sanders
The entire purpose of forming this society is to give us protection
and to ensure that funds currently split between myself and
John-Mark's bank accounts do not get lost in the case of under-bus
incidents and the like.
In order to successfully inaugurate the society, we will need to do
1. Agree on a constitution for the society
2. Nominate and elect a committee
3. Formally vote on and accept the constitution and committee.
4. Define the date of the first AGM.
5. Resolve to instantiate the bank account.
The proposed constitution is the basis of the first
point. Nominations for the committee can be sent to me (as I am acting
as secretary/chair for this inaugural meeting) or stated when
solicited at the inaugural meeting. (Note, anyone can decline the
role, and no-one not present at the meeting will be eligible for
nomination. I'm requiring this simply to ensure that the new committee
be present in order to sort out the bank account subsequently).
This inaugural meeting will be held on IRC in #netsurf on Freenode on
Monday the 19th January at 19:00 UTC. Only potential members of the
society will be permitted to cast a vote or nominate someone for a
The three roles are, as can be seen in the draft constitution,
Secretary, Chair and Treasurer. You may nominate any potential member
for any of the roles (they obviously have the right to turn down the
nomination) and nominations for the same person to multiple roles will
be resolved at the meeting.
If you need anything clarifying or you think the list of potential
members or the proposed agenda for the inaugural meeting is incomplete
or incorrect then please let me know.
