-attendance and new membership
jesse - excused
is weg a voting member? minor discussion--unsure.
- branch (blanche) updates
we have space and lots of tables, a dedicated gaming day is approaching
once matrix is up ideas will be "shlanged"
could do some kind of magic drafting? cubes? (It's a conglomeration of sets people like)
What's up with the minetest server?
It's down, was on gibson (needs to be separated from official stuff)
Gibson only hosted mumble as an official cyberia service (now on comet)
regarding game night stuff, if there is interest sanine would be down to DM TTRPG (?) DND, etc.
starless and wes and zico are interested
I've been afk for two months, no updates
Forest: Why are we looking at teaching classes at LZ?
Forest wants regulars at LZ and wants it to be a happenin place, sees this as a vehicle
Most people have a job and won't be doing that, people without a job might be interested in programming to get a job
Wants to have more things going on than just a once-a-week craft night
No big changes
As covid situation fluctuates, we have an open invitation to Rapture
can ping justice
May want to consider Pride, don't know the deadlines
Forest is interested and will proceed with that
We're open to ideas for how to use the space
technology self-defense, falling back in love with colmputers
haven't discussed physical space expectations, but it's important that we make use of the space
matrix down from update
People keep asking forest about capsul
people making pull requests and engaging, really cool
Making something that a global community of folks are interested - really fucking cool
Forest has been doing video calls with people to set up environments
It would be great to get more folks involved in development
Sanine is down to help with that!
Python and pip is fun
Rituals and Regalia
No updates, but no blockers!
Zico: more wizard robes
Maybe we can sway carbide into helping develop a Cyberia Broach
What is the wizard robe budget?
aimless has robes to provide
won't discuss yesses and nos of bathrobes
suggestions for rituals and stuff, vves can csv
When the matrix is back up, put ideas in the rituals chat room!
They're hanging out at LZ
More stickers can be printed
Wes used "speedyslaps"
- treasurer update
real quick currently have: two thousand, twenty five dollars and thirty seven cents $2,025.37
monthly average use has gone up
need to decide which orgs to donate to
- vote on agenda
- zico proposes we add discussion & vote on which orgs to donate to to agenda
seconded by starless
Amended proposal: approve funds for donation, empower comittee to choose
Do we have a list of organizations we could donate to?
Forest has some suggestions
CoOp Cloud - they're really cool and our interests overlap
Matrix, nextcloud, apache, linux, signal, yunohost, mumble
Proposal #1: The proposal was changes as such: approve funds for donation, empower and create comittee to choose which orgs to donate from a fixed budget
Kas, Forest, volunteers?
We should determine the amount before we vote on the proposal
Kas: We need to see if we're paying for Pride or not, depends
We should choose what is more important: pride or outreach via donations to orgs?
Forest is down to cover Pride out of pocket
Scott: Let's try to keep this as a Cyberia cost
The bylaws dictate Kas has authority for costs up to $200, more for costs related to the space
(aside) Strongthany proposed adding a link to Mumble on our site, will submit a PR
Aimless: proposes lumping in Pride and donations as a single fund for the comittee to disperse
Scott: It seems like we're already on board for Pride, let's just do it and move on
Kas: We have $1000 to spare for donating
Proposal #1: was rejected by majority voice vote
Proposal #2: Proposal from Starless: Approval of dispersement of up to $1,000 in funds for Pride from club funds. The remainder of unspent funds will remain in the club account.
Proposal #2: seconded by Scott and queerposting
Passed by voice vote, will be added to agenda
Proposal #3: Second proposal from Starless: Empower and create comittee to choose which orgs to donate, identify budget for approval at next congress
Starless: How much did we donate last time? 200?
Discussion: Do we wait for subcomittee to identify orgs and seek approval, or authorize subcomittee to donate funds?
Wes: we can have the subcomittee decide the dollar amount to
Proposal #3: Passed by voice vote
Proposal #4: promptly dropped by scott
Proposal #5: Let's add an agenda point to have a discussion about the utilization of Layer Zero, instead of having the discussion while setting the agenda

Originally presented by zico
Aimless mentioned that LZ is not a public space, but a clubhouse
Starless: issue of zoning, we can't just have people walk in. A question of making the address not secret anymore?
Zico wants to open up the space to folks who aren't necessarily members
Scott: We should commit to having a welcoming environment for folks who aren't "us"
Karl: pamphlets for folks who visit?
Aimless: I don't want anyone from the public to be able to show up in the club's space unannounced
Starless: We should ask for proposals with actionable items for things we could do to achieve the goal of a friendly space
2. Summer Mentor/Learning program (tabled)
3. open discussion (table)
