* problem with burnout and other commitments, particularly techies, leaves collectives in the region in a difficult position.

* Sydney, Coffs Coast and Arafura now on Drupal, Aotearoa is trying to move (and Melbourne could maybe if it comes back). There was a proposal to have a single IndyDrupal 'back-end' engine dunning on one server (eg Axxs), which is capable of driving multiple 'front-end' sites, one for each country or city capable of maintaining an editorial collective. Each front-end site could have its own appearance and conguration. (Strypey) Shayne (Perth) hates drupal (with a passion).

* to form a more informal workgroup to look at the tech options and report back to another meeting in a couple of weeks or something => can geeks join the oceania-tech list for tech discussion

* discuss the option of password sharing between IMCs where folks can troll swat on other folks indys

* discussion around IMC in the pacific islands: people on the ground know what their priorities are and what resources they need to do independent media. We also need to make contact with Pacific Islanders in settler nations (oz, nz & us). => join the imc-pasifika-setup list:

* meanwhile we report back to our collectives on some of the issues socially we've talked about
