FSA Final Call for comments
by Ted Gould
Karen sent out an updated FSA, which includes the changes we voted on, but also updates that come from the newer version of their template. I've read through them and don't see any significant changes other than just making it easier to read.
We don't need to vote on the change because, well, everyone has to sign it anyway. But, it would be nice to not end up in a state where someone won't sign it because they don't like change. So this email is to ask if anyone has any blocking changes on the FSA as sent by Karen, and attached below.
My schedule is that, if no one has blocking issues, I'll ask the SFC to send out the FSA for signatures on Monday August 1st, 2022.

Inkscape 1.2.1 is mainly a stability and bugfix release,
fixing a nasty data loss crash with the export dialog, various other
crashes, and improving page export and some translations.
Thanks to everyone involved in that release!

VOTE: hardware 2FA for project sensitive access
by Marc Jeanmougin
Dear leadership committee,
Your attention is required to vote on the following matters:
Some contributors have, or need to have, access to social media accounts
to post on the behalf of the project, or to infrastructure accounts,
most importantly gitlab. For computer security, we would like to protect
those accesses with a safe 2FA method, and the safest method to avoid
impersonation and phishing attacks is a 2FA hardware token with FIDO2 or
U2F. Then we would be able to set a policy to enforce 2fa when
contributors need access to passwords that would be shared on nextcloud,
or to contributors with "owner" access to gitlab projects.
The most common such token is the Yubikey (45€/$ a piece+10
tax+5shipping) but there are equivalents with open hardware component
and open source software (e.g. solokeys at 35€/$ incl. tax +5€ shipping,
or nitrokey ). As for the amount of people, the vectors team has around
10-15 people with some level of access to passwords of the project, 4
people do not have 2FA and have "owner" access to the whole gitlab
project, + 2 "maintainer" access to inkscape/inkscape (and more in other
sub-projects). We also have the possibility to offer it to all regular
contributors for whom it would be useful.
It is yet to be seen whether we could have a discount by asking, or if
there is a way to pay for the whole order and get a single reimbursement
instead of reimbursing individual contributors
a. Reimburse up to 2000 USD for password and project protection, and
also offering it to contributors who have been in the project for more
than a year and ask for it (implies support for option b)
b. Reimburse up to 1000 USD to protect the project's passwords on
nextcloud and gitlab project access (only contributors who have access
to nextcloud, and gitlab maintainer or owner access)
c. Do not do it
d. Other (please specify)
