Rapports - Rapportering
  • Reporting of coreteam: by Thomas
  • Reporting of operational squads
    • Community: by Vincent
      • One adress: contact'at'pirateparty.be, with a team behind it: Jonas DK, Kasper, Sarah, Renaud, Noémi, Danny, Xavier, Kash, Vincent, Thomas, Kjell
      • Big improvement of the answer delay.
      • All facebook pages have improved their followers amount.
      • Welcome crews Mechelen & Namur
      • Is everyone confortable with english?
      • Pirate Brunches of Feb. and March in Brussels were very positive. Pirates came from BXL, BW, Antwerpen, Gent, Namur. First Sunday of each month, in Julia's office, Etterbeek. Starting 11.30.
      • Some Pirates have started using Telegram (https://telegram.org/) for informal communication. So far, so good.
      • Need a place where everyone can discuss (replace all existing channels by a single forum? Add a functionality to getop for the discussions without vote?)
    • Finance: by Stef
    • GA: by Fred
      • Gaspring2015-reporting-gasquad.pdf
    • IT: by?
      • Servers stability improved (tx Askarel)
      • Structure simplified (hackathon helped, tx Tom, Askarel, Koen, Patrick, Thomas, Kash, Xavier, Vincent for participating)
      • Still too complicated for our needs
      • Roles attribution unclear: who is managing infrastructure, DNS, Drupal, Wiki, pads, GetOp, emails, ...
      • We probably won't be able to maintain the system as is. A clean infrastructure is needed.
      • We are unconfortable with the fact that Facebook is one of the main communication channels, be have no clear solution atm. (Jitsi? Telegram? Discourse - http://www.discourse.org/ ?)
    • Press: by?
    • Secretary: by?
    • Wiki: by Vincent & Fred
      • Gaspring2015-reporting-wikisquad.pdf
      • Wiki's doing fine. Tx Manu for the work on forms for statutes. Tx all the team for being nice and responsive.
      • We want to make wiki workshops to help people to participate.
      • We want to plug to other wikis, for instance http://p2pfoundation.net/ via interwiki. But we need a lab server to experiment. wiki-lab.pirateparty.be would do the trick.
  • Reporting of Mediation Commission launched on previous GA : by members of Commission (cf. Xavier)

Decision making - Prises de décision

  • [EN]
    • Voting on agreeing to by-pass the proposal-making-procedure described in the Statutes. That procedure requires starting more than 10 weeks ahead of the GA, which is in practice currently very hard to follow.
    • If accepted, voting on three "extraordinary" proposals:
      • Proposal to leave the PPI.
      • Proposal to create vzw/asbl "Pirates of Belgium".
      • Proposal to sign No-Transat declaration
    • These proposals can be found on GetOp, for online discussion:
  • [FR]
    • Vote sur un accord pour contourner la procédure de contribution décrite dans les Statuts. Cette procédure requiert de commencer plus de 10 semaines avant l'AG, ce qui en pratique est actuellement très dur à suivre.
    • Si accepté, vote sur 3 propositions "extraordinaires" :
      • Proposition de quitter le PPI.
      • Proposition de créer une ASBL "Pirates of Belgium".
      • Proposition de signer la déclaration No-Transat
    • Ces propositions peuvent être trouvées sur GetOp, pour des discussions en-ligne :
  • [NL]
    • Stemmen om akkoord te gaan met het omzeilen van de voorstellen-makende-procedure zoals in de statuten beschreven. Deze procedure vereist dat er 10 weken vóór de AV (Algemene Vergadering) gestart wordt, dat is in feite nog zeer moeilijk te volgen.
    • Indien aanvaard, stemmen op 3 "buitengewone" voorstellen:
      • Voorstel om de PPI te verlaten.
      • Voorstel om een vzw "Pirates of Belgium" te creëren.
      • Voorstel om de No-Transat verklaring te tekenen.
    • Deze voorstellen kunnen teruggevonden worden op GetOp, voor online discussie:

      • There are only 3 proposals, isn't it a waste of time to use the latex template for so few?

        • I am not planning to print but just to beam the getop page. --Valerie (talk) 11:57, 24 March 2015 (CET)
