== New business ==

=== Default Desktop ===

* Dennis directed the Board to http://lists.opensuse.org/opensuse-project/2009-08/msg00548.html
** OpenSUSE will default to a KDE desktop radio button selection in DVD installer
** Fedora doesn't have such a stance on KDE
** At a previous meeting the Fedora Board made a decision to make the download page less confusing for end-users
** Dennis to extend invitation to KDE SIG to attend the IRC meeting (see above) when the design of the new web pages will be discussed further
** Encourage people who disagree with the current proposed design to bring constructive suggestions for improvement within the requirements already specified and discussed on fedora-advisory-board

=== Hall Monitor Update ===

** Update on process to FAB for transparency
** Monitors to issue quarterly reports

=== General spin question ===

* (mmcgrath) Who approves different spins?
** Mike would like to treat net install like a spin and make a page for it, post-F12
** Spins could potentially move to mirror space soon now that we have more space
** (group answer) The spins SIG does technical approval, and the Board approves trademarks
** The purpose is to better market the net installation ISO for general use
* No Board action needed, just FYI and information gathering

== Next meeting ==

* Proposed: 2009-08-27 UTC 1600
** IRC Meeting with Design team
** Paul to send announcement 
** John Poelstra on vacation all week -- will not be able to attend
