1) Review of Previous meeting minutes and actions
1a) Prv Action: To enforce stricter intrepretation of Other Press category to be carried out. Being done

1b) Prv Action: To contact NGOs for Outreach. Not complete yet. Mark is working on this.

1c) Prv Action: Ant to coordinate writing of text for outreach leaflet. Not complete yet. Ant will work on this and post text to list within a week

1d) Prv Action: To hold an event for Eamons Crudden's new film. Done already in Seomra Spraoi but not organised by Indymedia, although we did a feature article promoting it. Successful night.

1e) Prv Action: To hold an Indy open day/workshops. To be organised. Probably for February.

1f) Prv Action: To implement code changes for transparency of actions with IP monitor. Completed.

1g) Prv Action: To generate automatic email when someone is banned. Not done.
This generated a lot of discussion and two proposals were put forward around IP banning. These were
*Proposal 1: Before a moderator can ban someone, you must provide URL evidence as a means of justifying the ban.
Vote: Not carried. 3 against, 1 for, 1 abstain
Summary: It would further increase the workload.

*Proposal 2: To aim to ban someone for less than or equal to 3 days and not more than 3 days for a 1st time ban
Vote: Motion carried. 5 For.
Action: To implement auto generation of email to list when an IP is banned.

1h) Prv Action: Ant to investigate how to run video on server. Partially completed. Ant has installed bit-torrent tracker software (it coordinates users) and is now ready to start hosting some videos for use with bit-torrent. Proposing to give ftp access to Eamon and maybe Revolt video.
He will continue work and investigation of flash mode.
Action: Static Oscailt page to be updated with info on this and new film Route Irish

1i) Prv Action: Terry to investigate enabling users to post Youtube videos. Partially complete. Code completed and tested and ready to go. Other formats can follow later.

Action: Ant to see if James and or C. will come back to List Administration

1k) Prv Action: To review Reddy's proposed new front page. Not done.
This generated discussion and his mockup was reviewed briefly by all those present at the meeting.
In summary, proposed page was generally agreeable, but the limit of only 1 feature was an issue because 2 or more features can help build up for an event. Also to do this properly will very likely require Oscailt code changes.

Action: To investigate implmeneting 1 hour delay on comment publishing like Bristol IMC, except to on a per story rather than per site basis
