SUMMARY

cron2, jamesyonan, mattock, OSTIFDerek and syzzer participated in this
meeting.

- ---

Discussed OSTIF.org, which has chosen OpenVPN as one of the sponsored
projects:

<https://ostif.org/>

OSTIF will start a Kickstarter funding round in Dec 1st. They have
identified 130 VPN providers using OpenVPN, all of which are potential
contributors. The first goal of OSTIF.org is to hire a suitable company to
do a security (code) review of both OpenVPN 2.x and 3.x. After that the bug
bounty system will be initiated, aimed at both finding bugs and fixing
them. OSTIFDerek will send a link to the Kickstarter page once it's up.
Then we just wait and see what amount of donations we'll get and move on
from there. The details with distributing bounties can be discussed later
and adapted in use as needed.

Discussed the Flattr micro-donations system:

<https://flattr.com/>

Agreed that transparency in how funds are used is essential. Depending on
how much money can be raised, the initial plan is to use the donations to
sponsor travel costs for core developers who currently pay for the
developer hackathon costs from their own pockets.

- --

Discussed setting up Travis-CI and Coverity for OpenVPN. Syzzer's test
setup is now working ok, and he will provide a patch to OpenVPN that adds a
.travis.yml. We will configure Coverity and Travis to track a special Git
branch which we will periodically update; this is required because the
number of daily/weekly builds is throttled.

- --

Discussed the OpenVPN 2.3.9 release. The following patches will go in, if
possible:

1) Support for username-only auth file (6e9373c846)

While this is a new feature, it was accepted to 2.3.9 because it's fairly
unintrusive and provides functionality that many people seem to want.

2) Tap-windows6 bugfix (assigned to jamesyonan)
3) Avoid partial authentication state when using --disabled in CCD configs
4) The query username/password patchset
5) CHANGES.rst (assigned to mattock)
6) Windows 10 DNS leak fix/workaround

- --

Discussed a few of the Trac tickets. Ticket #180 is similar to dazo's patch
for #521, so cron2 will try to poke dazo tomorrow about it. Cron2 assigned
#91 to himself. Mattock will see if adding a generic "old FAQ" redirect
would be doable (#323). Cron2 closed #593, which had been sorted out
earlier.

- --

Discussed the proposal to move Git "master" branch to mbedTLS 2.x. The
problem is that mbedTLS 1.3 will EOL on 31st Dec 2016, and at that time
OpenVPN 2.4 will almost certainly be out. Support for OpenVPN 2.3 will end
when OpenVPN 2.4.0 is released, so if we're quick with 2.4, we don't have
to port the "release/2.3" branch over to mbedTLS 2.x at all.
