CAcert has a new board

CAcert has rehosted their CAcert server from Sydney Australia to Holland. To accomplish this, a foundation Stichting Oophaga Foundation was set up. NLnet and other parties sponsor this new foundation.

Oophaga machinery was donated by SUN, Tunix, Net Apps, Cisco, and BIT. It got installed in a rack at the BIT ISP in Ede Holland.

Duane Groth --the initiator of CAcert-- has announced his resignation. In a Special General Meeting, the participants voted on an intermediate board. The board has three members: Greg Rose (chair), Robert Cruikshank (treasurer), and Evaldo Gardenali (secretary). Plans were made to update regulations for membership, policies, finances, and control of operations.

An Advisory team of three (Teus Hagen of NLnet, Ian Grigg -audit, Jens Paul -assurances) is preparing the hackathon "CAcert TOP" on 17-21 September in Germany. NLnet is fully sponsoring this meeting, hotel, and travel assistance.

Plans for several improvements in operations and organisation have been drafted, to be approved at the hackathon. The plans cover assurers training and certification, organisational assurances, PR, housestyling, openess, policies, auditing and acceptance of root certificates in main browser stream, board elections, organizational offices, and responsibilities.
