2.Membership numbers update
37 members: 18 founders, 19 non-founders.
10 founder members out of status.

4.Domain names & trademarks agreement
No change from last committee meeting.

5.Contracts, SOW & NDA
No progress from last committee meeting.

6.Member Management System:  mms.openskills.org
A new version of the MMS was released that runs through Squid 2.5 and
directly handles authentication (previously done by Squid 3.0).

7.SkillsBase.  skillsbase.openskills.org
We will be releasing another version of the SkillsBase within the week.
~ This version handles authentication in the same way at the MMS does
now.  The search results page which lists matching members no longer
shows all of the skills each member has, but only shows the skills they
have which match the search criteria.  Preferred location will also
shown on this page in response to a request from a searcher.

8.Effort Tracking system: efforttrack.openskills.org
No progress this month.  BB will be contacting Dave Nasbey to let him
know that Anand has offered his help in getting this system up and running.

9.Mail List Server:  lists.openskills.org
The only issue has been a delay in messages appearing on the list
because of the grey-listing employed by our SMTP server.  Patrick
Lesslie has resigned as the administrator of these services.
AK volunteered to take this on.

10.Request Tracker: rt.openskills.org
No progress this month.  We still need to set the access rights for this
service to allow guest read-only access.

11.Wiki:  wiki.openskills.org
Has been running smoothly, no issues.

12.Jabber:  jabber.openskills.org
Has been running smoothly, no issues.

13.Mail:  smtp.openskills.org
Has been running smoothly.  The only issue is that messages to the mail
lists are delayed by the grey listing, but this delay is the price for
cutting out one class of spam.

14.System Backup Test
SG still working on getting Xen installed.
