Present: JE, TM

Apologies: RL

STUMP

TM reported that he has been filing a large number of bugs in STUMP. Some of these bugs he has fixed himself and others have been assigned to RL or JE. The submission of WebSTUMP to Savannah is still pending.

Moderation

JE has written to Dario regarding comp.os.linux.announce comp.os.linux.announce on Google Groups and is awaiting confirmation from him before making him the new moderator.

RL reported by e-mail that he had written to Todd McComb asking to change the moderation address for comp.ai comp.ai on Google Groups and is awaiting a response.

Publicity

JE reported on his well received talk "Reviving Usenet" at the 2020 openSUSE + LibreOffice Virtual Conference, which TM also attended. The talk led to an e-mail from a backbone provider admin which JE will be following up. JE will also get in touch with a journalist at Linux Magazine and ADMIN Network & Security, who sponsored the conference.

Agreed to defer further discussion of publicity, including the press release, until RL's return.
