Dear Francesco,

based on what we talked in Madrid I want you to add me as a person to the AALOA board.

Sten you should reply to the mail on the Promoters mailing list with subject
"[aaloa promoters] Nominating the temporary governing board"
the last reply was from Thomas Karopka

I think we also wrote you a mail some month ago that I have checked with our offices that AIT-HBS would like to be a promoting company. So far I see us not on the AALOA page (the logo you find in the erroom).
Please use the following link (also behind Andreas and my name in the supporter and promoter list!!): http://www.ait.ac.at/homeCare-AALSolutions

Probably I misunderstood your position. By the way  being promoters as organization means that your Organization  may be asked to share the cost of the infrastructure ... in this moment we don't have big expenditure ... CNR is  providing the machine and the domain maintenance, but it could be in the future we need to share cost of maintaining the association in general.  We (CNR, FhIGD, ITACA, SINTEF) had a telco in order to discuss about such issues, but we don't have a formal agreement... only a gentlemen agreement and a number of Expression of Interest (letters exchanged)

If you are sure that you want this visibility and "duties",  then replying to the above mail, I suggest you to state also the intention of your organization to be listed as Promoting Organization as you are committed to strongly support this community, and that Andreas will contact the other organisations by sending an Expression of Interest. (we can talk better about this)

Concerning the names don't worry. You are listed in both the groups. The difference is that in the web page they are listed alphabetically, while in the manifest according the time they joined.

You will also get a message soon that we want to join AALOA with a project called H.O.M.E.R which is an OSGI based sensor service platform we want also to offer in open source and which is already used in the BEDMOND AAL-JP. Please consider homer.aaloa.org

Great to know about this !!!
Sten the first project to be supported will be ZigBee 4OSGi. We will start  in few days (week) and you will see an example of the procedure that we will put in place. Basically a project proposal should be submitted to the temporary governing board to be accepted and incorporated. Yes, the board of which you will be part, then the needed infrastructure will be allocated for the project,  if it is accepted.
The important things to know are:
- Is the project already active?  if yes than there are a number of persons already working on it and maybe sharing already some infrastructure. Are those infrastructures public? are they using collaborative tools for an OS development? If yes, then we can just point to your host machine with the address homer.aaloa.org
This would mean to really start to federate projects and you as Promoting Organization to create a piece of the shared infrastructure of AALOA. (in this case I would suggest you to allocate a separate machine for the project, in fact one of the option we discussed was to donate Host machines to the association)
Otherwise, if you need to create this infrastructure from the scratch, we would allocate the resources for you.
It means that on the AALOA Host machine we would instantiate the software you require.
It would be more easy having you as promoter, because in this case one  "infrastructure manager" of your organization could be granted with access right to our machine and start to set up your environment.
Yes, because each project is autonomous, we don't force you to use the same tools apart from the SVN repository, that is important to track the activity of all the community.

Another important aspect is the number of people working in the project. You should indicate the number of initial committers, and the project leader who will maintain contact with the Governing Board of AALOA (this should be confirmed by the Bylaw of the association when incorporated )
Moreover it is also useful to list a number of persons (key person, personalities)  that express their interest in the project proposal ... they don't necessarily be part active of the project now neither in the future. This is also a way to push you to make publicity to your project, and to bring new attention to AALOA too.

As discussed please consider me also member of the technical committee in the Evaal - so far its possible that my colleagues from AIT can also submit to the competition of localization.

As member of the Steering Board of EvAAL I will signal your request to the chair of the program committee.
I will be back to you on this ASAP.

Thank you for your help and participation
Feel free to ask me more details, we can also talk by phone


Kind regards Sten
