Old Business

Foundation tax status

Joseph has suggested we are ready to file the 1023 Application with the IRS to reapply for tax status. There are some areas that need resolution and the board is working to help complete those.

A request for up to $2,000 was made for accounting fees to assist in the application. Approved by the board.

It was suggested we take down the membership donation page on djangoproject.com. Jeremy to follow up on.
