Update from Tech Board:
- Thomas described the discussion and agreements at the most recent Tech Board meeting. Full minutes are at: http://dpdk.org/ml/archives/dev/2017-January/056363.html. Confirmation of new members is at: http://dpdk.org/ml/archives/announce/2017-January/000109.html
- Size was increased to 9 members. Panu resigned as he's no longer active in DPDK. Hemant, Jan and Yuanhan were approved as new members.
- Some concerns were expressed over having an additional Intel member. The criteria that the Tech Board used in making this decision are described in the charter, section 3.2.2, iii. People should review this text again and suggest any proposed changes in advance of next week's meeting.
- There was a concern expressed over the fact that two companies combined can still constitute a majority of the Tech Board. Mike Dolan clarified that he's not aware of any other project where this has been an issue, or any project that has imposed limits on this.
- Meetings will be restricted to Tech Board members but minutes will be public. I'll update the charter to reflect this.
- Discussed whether an election process is required for voting on new members. This adds complexity because we would need to define a process, decide who can vote, decide who runs the vote etc. Again, people should review what's currently in the charter (which specifies that the current Tech Board nominate and approve new members) and make any alternative suggestions if they disagree.

Membership update:
- Anybody interested in membership should reply to Mike Dolan's request: http://dpdk.org/ml/archives/moving/2017-January/000160.html. I'll forward to the announce mailing list to make sure it reaches everybody who may be interested.
- Mike summarized the responses he's received so far. 4 responses received. 3 were interested in Gold membership. All of these were interested in the lab, but one felt that developer events were a higher priority. 1 response indicated interest in a single flat rate membership level focused on marketing and events rather than infrastructure. We'll review again when we have a bigger sample size.

Reviewed estimated budget:
- Estimated budget is at: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-3686Xb_jf4FtxdX8Mus9UwIxUb2vI_ppmJV5GnXcLg/edit#gid=302618256.
- It's important to remember that this is just a wish list of things we'd like to do and a rough estimate of costs. The real work will be to prioritise items when we know what our actual budget is.
- The "Baseline" column is the estimate we agreed early last year for a minimal DPDK LF project with the budget focused on events. The "Baseline + Lab" column adds a rough estimate for a minimal DPDK reference lab. The "Optional" column is for a more complete solution taking advantage of additional LF services for things like marketing, content creation etc.
