  1. MWStake Incorporation
    • (Mark) Our lawyer sent our check ($600) and paperwork to the US Treasury for our non-profit filing.
    • (Bryan) Our bank account is set-up and we are ready for the merchant services account (our ability) to accept payment (conference tickets, membership dues, grants, etc.). We are just waiting to request money to start this last step since it comes with a monthly cost.
  2. EMWCon 2020
    • (Cindy) We should have an early call for papers, possibly with a deadline.
    • (Jeroen) A big concern I've had with recent EMWCon/SMWCon is super late announcement. Announcing the schedule just a month before is a rather absurd IMO.
    • (Jeroen) Also announcement of the conference itself. 4 months is not that much. Many confs announce a year in advance
  3. MediaWiki Blog
    • (Tom) It would be good if they wrote about new extensions, updates to extensions, major releases, etc.
    • (Bryan) I thought I heard authors might be paid?
      • (Mark & Cindy) I don't think they authors will be paid.
