The point of the board is to make decisions without having huge, 3-week
flamewars on the public lists. If we require that all decisions be done
this way, nothing is going to change. I like the idea of having minutes
posted to the public lists (of non-confidential stuff), though, because I
feel that the community at-large should know what's going on with the
board, but the board itself should meet in person when it can, but most of
the conversations should happen over the conference call.
