== Board statement 2015 ==

I have been a member of HCoop since 2005 and currently serve as Secretary; I also run [[http://planet.hcoop.net/|Planet HCoop]] and have contributed to Domtool. My platform:

 1. Purchase and install a new server as soon as possible so that we can responsibly expand our membership.
 1. Expand membership through word-of-mouth recommendations and grassroots campaigns.
 1. Recruit system administration volunteers so that we can provide new services, like microblogging and Media''''''Goblin.
 1. Adopt a license policy to make our future software and documentation free (documentation is currently non-free).
 1. Adopt an EnvironmentalPolicy requiring that we offset the pollution we generate.
 1. Move our accounts to the National Cooperative Bank or a credit union.

== OpenID server ==

Would it make sense for HCoop to be an [[http://openid.net/|OpenID]] provider? [[http://pypi.python.org/pypi/gracie/0.2.6|Gracie]] is a server that authenticates users using PAM, and it's in Debian. We could allow users to register their identity URIs using domtool, as well as supporting `http://hcoop.net/~user` automatically.

Line 23: Line 8:
Gitweb URIs: Repo.or.cz uses cleaner URIs than gitweb's defaults -- for example, `/w/foo.git/commit/abcdef` for viewing an individual commit. We should patch our gitweb script to provide something similar.

Provide more VCS web interfaces: eventually we should have some subset of darcshub, darcsweb, hgweb, gitorious, cgit, extended gitweb, maybe even Sourceforge or Savane

Fix moinmoin headings somehow. Many pages use H1 for section titles which makes the outline (in the html5 sense) nonsensical and contradicts w3c recommendations

Fix defaults that lead to serving the same resource from multiple URIs. In particular, don't serve files from `public_html` from domains by default, and use permanent redirects from the `www` subdomain to the bare domain name or vice versa

Poll members about what they would like to do with free social networking services (e.g., ostatus, mediagoblin); what approaches they would prefer for vanity domains vs. central installations; use by non-members (e.g. will their friends want to use their installations, would their friends join hcoop, etc.); semi-managed installations vs. manual individual administration; ...

Implement portal redesign: http://hcoop.net/~bpt/tmp/portal.html

Find out whether we can accept copyright assignments

Pass [[https://lists.hcoop.net/pipermail/hcoop-misc/2008-February/000082.html|ntk's anti-FISA policy]]

Moniker TODOs: Keep changes in version control. Reduce wasted white space at top of page. Center HCoop logo.

Policy/guideline ideas:

Licensing policy: (A)GPLv3-compatible for software, the usual free content licenses for other things? We may want an exception for logos, or just protect them as trademarks like Debian does. The content license(s) should be GPL-compatible since we probably have some "content" that is GPL, like domtool docstrings. (CC-BY-SA 4.0 is one-way compatible with GPLv3.) Relicensing the wiki may be difficult, but there are probably not many (15, 20?) contributors of substantial amounts of currently-relevant text, excluding homepages.

Internal writing guidelines: use gender-inclusive language; promote only FreeSoftware officially, and ask that people consider FreeSoftware principles and the SevenPrinciples when officially recommending a service or organization; write "GNU/Linux" instead of "Linux" when referring to the entire OS
