  • Conservancy will be expanding its service plan now that Bradley is full time. (06:46)
  • Conservancy will try do copyright assignment in a community-focused way, only if the developers want it. Conservancy will also do much more GPL enforcement than it has previously. (07:20)
  • Bradley mentioned that Matthew Garrett has been doing some GPL enforcement, and Bradley thanked him for it publicly. (07:50)
  • Karen thinks we'll see more enforcement over time, by more people. (08:14)

  • Bradley mentioned that Matt Mackall is doing Mercurial development funded through Conservancy. (09:20)

  • Bradley mentioned the LibreOffice by the Document Foundation (18:03)
  • Karen points out that for-profit and non-profit go hand-in-hand. But, Bradley argues that steward of a FLOSS project should always be a non-profit. Karen agrees. (19:00-19:30)
