We haven't formally discussed it yet. I assume that getting this
straight is one of the last things on the minds of the Intel/OH guys
and the board has no reason to rush them :) Obviously we want to
continue to deepen our relationship both with the OH team and with
other parts of Intel as well, so we'll work with them to make sure we
get it right.

In practice, it is worth noting that the exact nature of advisory
board seats are extremely flexible. For example, we often invite
advisory board members to bring technical advisors to calls. So I'd
expect that while there will formally be one less seat at the table
we'll frequently have representatives from both 'old' Intel and the OH
crew, depending on what is appropriate for the topic at hand.

Hope that answers the question-
