9:00 - 13:00 Polarsys meeting

  • Polarsys
  • Polarsys governance
    • Clarification of memberships and charter:
      • Research labs are eligible for 5 000$ solution member fees due to specific classification in the Eclipse bylaws.
      • On the Polarsys side, it has been decided to follow the Eclipse position and ask for the same class of fees. So Research labs are in the <10M$ category (10 000$ for participating members and 25 000$ for strategic members).
      • P. Arberet and J Delange raise the issue of membership for CNES and ESA like entities. Basically, they do not want to pay a fee because they think their providers should do it themselves. Participating may mean a multiplicated fee: one direct and others re-invoiced by the providers. The proposal from Polarsys is to consider CNES and ESA as Research Institute, so that to apply the fee of <10M$ category.
    • Discussion about appointement of Chairman and SpokePerson
      • Chairman and spokesperson: the chairman needs to be a strategic eclipse member up to now. It means that only somebody from Obeo or Itemis should be the chairman. The spokesperson can be anybody.
    • Review of the Charter
