New Business

More DSF members

It was suggested that we approach more people asking if they'd like to join the DSF, targetting diversity.


Proposed site offering Django training. Requesting a link to their site once the new site is built, which will have some sections highlighting help and training. Was felt by the board that the DSF should not be vetting training providers.

Amazon Smile

Proposed that the DSF set up an account with Amazon Smile, but waiting on tax status.

Django Pony

Proposed that we either license the Django Pony or have a FAQ pointing out that the Pony is not a trademark of the DSF and where an appropriate license can be found. Decision postponed until next month.
