Reviewed the latest comments on the project charter. These were the significant discussion points:

Discussed whether Governing Board meetings should be public:
- Most other board meetings in similar open source projects are private. Projects such as OFP do issue public versions of meeting minutes, which are typically >90% the same as the private version.
- I proposed leaving the charter doc unchanged. As currently written, it does not require GB meetings to be public, but does not prevent the GB from having public meetings if it chooses to do so in future. Most people (Ed, Keith, Kevin, Jaswinder) agreed. Vincent disagreed. Vincent will consider the issue again and see if there's another way to address his concerns.

Reviewed 4.c and 4.d, which document that the GB will determine limits and costs for hosting hardware in the lab, if and when a DPDK lab is set up. Removed proposed 4.e which proposed that the lab approach should be approved by the Technical Board as this was considered an implementation detail.

There was a reminder from Thomas for people interested in CI to register for and contribute on the ci@dpdk.org mailing list.

Discussed trademarks. Vincent proposed that we add text to the charter specifying that there is no current trademark on "DPDK" and no plans to create one. Agreed to leave the charter doc unchanged until Mike Dolan's discussions on legal issues reach a conclusion on this as there may be other legal/trademark issues that we're missing.

When we progress to membership discussions, the Linux Foundation will need to discuss membership, membership levels, fees etc. with each potential member separately. We need to determine who the right point of contact is for each potential member company. It should be somebody who has the authority to commit that company to a specific DPDK membership level. We can start to create a list of contact names at next week's meeting.

Next Meeting:
Tuesday January 24th at 3pm GMT, 4pm CET, 10am EST, 7am PST. We'll discuss next steps for identifying membership rates, project members etc. We can also cover any remaining comments/concerns on the charter.
