Secretary's report

Neil McGovern, a current board member who is vacating his seat at the conclusion of the currently ongoing SPI election, has kindly agreed to run this election. Also, contributing members were asked for feedback regarding Open64 and OSUNIX as potential new projects. A small amount of positive feedback was received and no negative feedback was received.

WHEREAS

 1. Open64 is a substantial and useful open source project.

 2. Open64 would like SPI's support and assistance, including taking
donations.

THE SPI BOARD RESOLVES THAT

 3. Open64 is formally invited to become an SPI
Associated Project, according to the SPI Framework for Associated
Projects, SPI Resolution 1998-11-16.iwj.1-amended-2004-08-10.iwj.1, a
copy of which can be found at
http://www.spi-inc.org/corporate/resolutions/2004-08-10.iwj.1

 4. The Open64 Steering Committee acting by consensus resolution
is recognized as the authoritative decision maker for Open64,
and C. Bergström is recognized by SPI as the current designated
liaison for Open64.

 5. This invitation will lapse, if not accepted by the Open64
Steering Committee, 60 days after it is approved by the SPI
Board.

Resolution 2009-07-06.jrk.2: OSUNIX as associated project (proposed)

WHEREAS

 1. OSUNIX is a substantial and useful open source project.

 2. OSUNIX would like SPI's support and assistance, including taking
