Board announces six resolutions

The Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees announced six resolutions this week. Resolutions accepting BradPatrick's resignation, advertising the position of 'legal coordinator', and hiring Rob Halsell as a computer technician passed (see related story). Other resolutions accepted the hiring of Cary Bass as Volunteer Coordinator, and authorized the purchase of about $280,000 in hardware (though the price may be less due to steep discounts). Among the purchases include 36 Apache application servers, 20 Squid servers, and various Foundry equipment.

Early Tuesday, another resolution, passed on 23 March, was made public. This resolution regulates the usage of non-free content, under certain legal provisions such as fair use.
