This is an amended version of the resolution presented for the July 11th
AGM; I have altered paragraph 1 to include reference to the SMC mission
statement and some examples of how this ties in with the purposes listed
in article 2 of our by-laws.

We're on a tight deadline if SMC are to be able to use us to handle
their GSoC funds (Josh has indicated he needs to know within the next
week). If you have an objection to the resolution below please suggest
updated text that would alleviate your concerns.

I'm presenting this for an email vote by the board (which requires
unanimous approval).


1. Swathanthra Malayalam Computing is a substantial and significant Free
   Software project, engaged in the development, localization,
   standardization and popularization of various Free and Open Source
   Softwares in Malayalam language. This aligns with SPI's stated purposes
   such as "support, encourage and promote the creation and development of
   software available to the general public", "endeavor to monitor and
   improve the quality of currently existing publicly available software"
   and "foster, promote and increase access to software systems available
   to the general public"

2. The Swathanthra Malayalam Computing developers would like SPI's support
   and assistance, including taking donations.


3. Swathanthra Malayalam Computing is formally invited to become an SPI
   Associated Project, according to the SPI Framework for Associated
   Projects, SPI Resolution
   1998-11-16.iwj.1-amended-2004-08-10.iwj.1, a copy of which can be found

4. Anivar Aravind is recognised by SPI as the liaison to SPI for Swathanthra
   Malayalam Computing and is responsible in the first instance for
   communicating the wishes of Swathanthra Malayalam Computing to SPI. In
   the event of the need for a replacement Santhosh Thottingal and/or Praveen
   Arimbrathodiyill will act as backups.

5. This invitation will lapse, if not accepted, 60 days after it is
   approved by the SPI Board.
