  If you think your time is scarce for going though those thing,
what do you expect to do instead ?
  I can't believe that you think giving one hour of your time every too
week is too much for the good standing of the project. And clearly, not
doing so - as this year board has shown - reflect badly on the project
organization !

  You were on the same board call as me for 2001-2003, you have minutes for
all of them, please point specifically at some of the items you think were
time wrongly spent at the board level ?
  I'm sorry but if I'm elected, I will ask to go back to regular meetings
every too weeks. And if we don't have much on the agenda, we can stop the
call after 15mn without shame. But we need those regular calls to work
on a consensus based way.
