I plan to make all board meetings except when I'm on an airplane and I always try to schedule my travel around standard commitments.

How much time I spend will vary week to week but I will respond promptly to my email and attend the meetings. I will also help lead and encourage projects - like the executive director search committee, the marketing team and hackfests.

2.) Other open source / free software projects run their meetings in
the open via IRC (such as Fedora's FESCO I believe). Would you
consider that, and if not, what about recording how board members vote
on a given topic. This includes +1 / -1 / abstains and perhaps give a
small comment on any -1 or abstain. In my opinion, as an open
foundation, the transparency of the board is absolutely critical
_where possible_. Leaders should always set the example for members.

I would agree with recording how people vote. (Actually, I think it would be a good idea.) I think people should vote for people that represent them. Knowing how directors vote will enable people to approach directors and vote for the candidates that are right for them. A small comment would enable directors to explain their vote.
