Meetup updates

Kannan, Abhijith, Prince, Sruthi, Praveen, Jagadhish, Harish, Sooraj, Ambady, Akhil were present in the meetup at PG Center, Thrissur.
Program started at 10am continued till 3.30 at PG center. Program was later continued at Akhil and Harish's workspace at Mannuthy till 7pm.

All the above mentined topics were discussed.

Privacy policy for poddery came to a conclusion and released v0.9 and posted for checking and correction by online members. Terms of use were discussed and a draft is now published on loomio. We consulted disroot.org's privacy policy and terms of use for reference and added few of their statements.

Poddery.com income and expense are checked and documented, thanks to Srud now we have a spredsheet of income and expense.

Old poddery server wasn't deleted and added lot of unnecessary expense, it will be deleted on July 1. Till then back up confirmation and mySQL->postgreSQL conversion will be tested on that.

Meeting has decided that funds to be recieved for services listed in FSCI wiki will be maintained at personal level as it will be much easier to maintain compared to alternatives. Here is the list of present account maintainers.

Poddery: Srud
Codema: Bady
Peertube: Mujeeb/Bady
Mailman: Bhe
