1. Budget
Max start by reviewing the latest and hottest topics about FAMSCo

Tasks review is then being discussed. The main topic is the settlement

of stats for Ambassadors. However, Susmit added his doubt about having

repos. Maybe they can be used in that purpose as well. Migrating to
trac the Ambassador membership system is being worked on and is
scheduled for February.

Francesco adjourned the meeting.
