So, I've detailed my vision, with two major changes:
- include foundation members in the daily running of the foundation by
having the majority of board business happen in the open on
foundation-list, including having the working version of the accounts in
a publicly accessible place, posting draft minutes straight after
meetings, rather than going through the 2/3 day review period we've had
in the past, posting agendas for meetings to foundation-list, and using
foundation-list as the main board mailing list, only going to board-list
for board-confidential issues.
Ok, I didn't get your previous mail as actually suggesting that board works on
foundation-list or another publicly accessible list primarily. This is an
interesting approach, and I think Fedora does something similar. I'm not
opposed to something like this. What I'm opposed to is adding extra burden to
board work by requiring a back and force all the time.
Regarding making accounts available, etc, again, I'm not against it, but
against premature optimization, ie. measuring its burden as well as positive
effects. Money matters is a bit harder to deal with because of the legalities
of the foundation. It may not be wise to disclose accounts before an
accountant gets to review their accuracy. That's my point.
- the foundation, through the board, should be empowered and committed
to maintaining a friendly and productive working environment
I'm not opposed to this.
