Thunderbird Project Council Meeting notes

When: June 8, 2020 at 9:00 PM – 10:08  CEST
Keeper of the minutes: Magnus
In the call: Magnus, Wayne (listen only), Philipp, Berna, Patrick, Jörg
Regrets: Ryan (PTO)

Hiring/personnel

  * Magnus informed about status of current hiring.
  * Discussed status of getting a benefits package for US employees.
    Still awaiting legal paper work before we can get any numbers of costs.

Product/strategy

  * Berna inquired if there are more thoughts on doing a code audit
    (related to crypto). Patrick suggested we could look into getting a
    MOSS grant for this.

Governance

  * Patrick/Wayne thinks the electorate list is ready (for self nominations)
      o Patrick to send it out.

Legal

  * Berna got a response from MoFo legal on how to address her concerns
    about the negligence clause in the current NDA. A new exhibit to the
    NDA with guidance for what MZLA would consider to be responsible
    practice will be added. This is designed to help clarify uncertainty
    or confusion around the term 'negligence'. Furthermore, a new
    structure to remove the need for a council member to be under NDA
    was also suggested. This could mean delegating
    confidential-information-related responsibilities (together with the
    NDA requirement) to a Council subcommittee, or shrugging off those
    responsibilities from the Council altogether. However, this would
    take effect in the next round of elections a year from now on.
