Rough Notes from previous meeting:

Meeting 15:00 UTC, September 9

SFC staff shared links to the Fiscal Sponsorship Agreement template

Fiscal sponsorship agreement talks about the structure, what's the best 
way to describe it?
Concern: is defining the scope of the project difficult? There are 
legacy projects, etc
Projects hosted by Sourceware will not become SFC projects

     * may need to write this into the agreement

Sourceware is well resourced enough to bring more projects on

Discussion about longevity and succession of Sourceware
Making sure that governance of the project is independent from any 

Discussed possible people to join the leadership committee
Possibly anyone who has root should be on the committee?

SFC recommends reaching out personally to overseers who have been active 
over the last 10 years to make sure they've seen the discussion about 
joining SFC and if they'd like to be involved.
