Perhaps there is a way some of this could be automated? Brian does a
great job of keeping insanely detailed minutes, but I fear anything
with a bus factor of exactly 1. This would be greatly enhanced if more
of the meetings (not saying all of them mind you) were in IRC. There
could even be an application that helps tally the votes and whatnot. I
dunno, but this is not an insurmountable problem. Again... where
possible, the Board should set the example for openness just like when
GNOME set the example for openness before QT was free software.
