Initiation of the Public Support Committee (PSC)
The PSC was enabled on the 2002-03-11 by the following PSF board resolution:
Resolution made by Tim 09-Mar-2002 Seconded by Guido 09-Mar-2002 Approved unanimously 11-Mar-2002
RESOLVED, that the PSF establishes a Public Support Committee (PSC), under section 5.9 of the PSF bylaws. Marc-Andre Lemburg is a director member of this committee, and all PSF directors are alternate members. The full membership will be determined by later resolution. The PSC researches ways to increase public support for the PSF, and proposes specific recommendations to the Board for implementation. This includes, without limitation, finding ways to implement direct funding of the PSF, and increasing visibility and public awareness of the PSF in the IT world, with special focus on the Python community. An immediate goal is boosting the PSF's "public support ratio" above 1/3 as quickly as possible. The PSC is specifically not authorized to spend PSF funds without Board approval.
