Thanks for the speedy minutes, Kelvin. A couple of suggested amendments:
I don't think the sign-in sheet ever quite got round to me, or a few others.
So, under "present", we need to add: Genny, Jay, Vanessa and Marc.
Under "Indymedia history", I'm sure that it's not the case now that all sites run on the same
software. Also, my understanding is that Indycymru does not wish to be part of United Kollectives
but does intend to become part of the global indymedia network.
Just to clarify for people who weren't at the meeting, these notes only cover the first part of the
meeting. After Kelvin had to leave, Mair took over and will be posting the second part in due course.
