Well I can certainly start discussions.  But I worry that apathy has
set in on this list and I'm interested to know if that is the case.

Apathetic about what about what exactly, though? As I understand it,
the Foundation exists to take care of the housekeeping and to talk to
partners, and this is mostly taken care of by our elected board. This
doesn't leave a lot of scope for the membership to get actively
involved except at election time. It doesn't mean that people don't
care about the Foundation; it's just that 1. Foundation activities
aren't necessarily relevant to contributors' day to day activities and
2. it's mostly taken care of for us.

I will do an experiment, I will talk about some of the things the
board is doing and if I see some positive feedback I will continue.
How do people feel about that?

I made an effort to attend and participate in the foundation IRC
meetings that used to happen, and it always felt a bit like we were
talking for talking's sake. It's great to try new ways of engaging the
membership, and I'm generally supportive, but my concern is that,
unless real decisions are at stake, this won't amount to very much.
