|ESE vs. CE||David||THG talked about ESE subscription and talked to community and customers before going ahead. Common theme - two different code bases was not well received. We decided to go with one code base, releases are every 6 months. We will focus on adds-on and priority support.|

Charter discussion: How we elect the board and what are the terms. We decided that the term for each Board member will be two years, with half of the current board staying longer, so Board have continuity. We also discussed goals and objectives and agree that those should be set every year.

Community survey results
Community survey discussion: Expected answers about source location and lack of the contribution process. Lack of documentation was low on respondents list. Discussion of strength and weaknesses led to the proposal of having a good set of documented examples (code, files, etc.) in C or C++ or Fortran or Java or Python that target specific use cases (there is a story behind each example) will be very useful for learning HDF5. The code should be freely available on Github, tested (nightly) and maintained.
Suggestion was to go over the rest of weaknesses and each Board member picks only one item on the list. This is how the Board will come up with priorities for this year.
