Agenda was:

1) Recent Resignations
General discussion over problems and perspectives took place

* Proposal regarding blog section put forward. It was agreed in principle to look at setting up a selected feed of blogs with compatible principles. Exactly how this will be incorporated into site will be decided when we have done more work on the idea and have seen if there is any interest amongst bloggers. Chekov will try to come up with a preliminary list of bloggers to invite and will attempt to see if there is any interest.

* Proposal to loosen restrictions on other press type and not to require summaries defeated
* Counter-proposal to tighten restrictions and ensure that they are properly followed unanimously agreed.

* Project will target NGOs, with particular focus on women's groups.
* Anthony will coordinate writing of the text to fill the leaflet

* It was also noted that we need new editors and writers.
* It was agreed that we should hold an event, hopefully for the release of eamonn crudden's new film, including a feature and article writing workshop. (padraig agreed to contact eamonn, seomra spraoi and william H. regarding this).

4) IP Moniter
* Use of the IP monitor was discussed and the following protocal was agreed: - any moderator can turn it on when they deem it necessary, but they must indicate a reason for the banning (the reason will appear in the edit log and the editor message page). - Any moderator can ban somebody for any length of time, but they must mail the list to indicate the reason for their action and justify the length of the ban. - A proper, worked out schedule for this stuff can be derived from practice. - terry will implemenet the necessary code-changes

5) Video.indymedia.ie
