Rogerreported that a Trust Board member would need to attend the FSF/SD AGMs on 28 July.  Several Board members expressed interest.  Anyone attending will need to register with both Sd and FSF - details had been circulated by email.  The Trust considered the proposals regarding a new organisation bringing SD and FSF together and agreed to recommend the AGM to support the proposal.
