Eric, Art, Hauke, Thomas, Kathy, Michal, and some others..

prpl board farm

* up and running, contact Eric if you want to get a board into the farm
* next phase to optimize cost and expand capacity so that others can
replicate the farm


* fund projects of interest to the community
* fund projects of interest to downstream companies who build upon OpenWrt
* Art and Hauke had a discussion; how to create win-win program for
community and companies (since Hauke has one foot in each)
* Art to follow-up with other core team members in the next week,
converge on goals, strategy

Regulatory update

* is FCC rejecting cert based on poor general security? TP-Link
blocked open source updates (March 12) — argument was that lock-down
was required to pass the FCC radio restrictions
* Eric presented at Libre Planet, spoke on FCC issues — good response
from that community and more discussion ensued on ways to handle it
* FTC getting into the loop on rating security? Hauke posted a link
(sorry I didn’t copy it into these notes, but you can contact him if
you’re interested)

OpenWrt Summit 2016

* Need volunteers for the planning committee!
* Eric will send out an e-mail asking for interested members to join
the planning committee
* prpl will handle the heavy lifting logistics and funding to
hopefully keep it free to attend
