report from board meeting

biggest news for tab is ted t'so assignment to the lf for 2 years starting january 2008 as fellow and chief platform strategist. john cherry left the lf, workgroups are reshuffled. lf organized legal summit in boston just prior to board meeting. james mentioned that best result is the fact that it happened. also discussion on the patent troll suit against redhat and suse.

pci sig membership

ongoing - andy is still trying to contact them to get something out of them. also intel's pci-sig rep offered help, but first tack is lawyers.

NDA program

ball appears in the lf's field. andy and ross might need to get active, also james will contact marvell cto after it is assured that it is their job.

Driver backport workgroup
