  Seems to already exist, is such a structure,
it convey your message perfectly in my opinion.

  We do understand each other, we simply disagree. That something you
may have to learn living with, this happens sometimes ...

  That was the last one, right. Any member on the advisory bord should
have a representative on the advisory-board list. Informations about the
event were carried there well in advance (like any other meeting with
travel needed) on that list. So if the FSF is on the Advisory Board, then
it should have a representative reading that list. If the information wasn't
received there is a problem on the FSF representation side for the board.

  I'm actually the admin for the advisory board list, I don't see any address
which seems to pertain to someone from the FSF. So 1/ if the FSF is officially
part of the AB, 2/ the FSF should designate a representative and pass me
his email so 3/ I can add him to the list.

  Now, if Tim could check point 1/ with you, then I will wait for 2/ and do 3/
