Re: Question to candidates - Minutes of the board meeting

Hi Christel and Benjamin

Thanks reply my question.

I think people ask question -- Because they want to improve or resolve some problem, maybe the status is optimization.
Thanks both of you give some suggestions.

I remember there are few questions for Board candidates and not sure every candidates answer all of the question.

Here is my thinking, I want to know.
* Is there any way to improve Minutes of the board meeting? or something happen in GNOME.
* What is the logic -- the board candidates will do? " Because it is a rule in wiki so keep it? " " I have an idea xxxxxx " " Do nothing or just vote because ________  "

I think maybe now is the best status or way to minutes of board meeting.
But if no one say that " Now is the optimization the best one, there is no way to improve ", how could we know?
I will ask the question because I meaning to me, 
If not every candidates answer most the question or no one ask question, how could we know if there are something happen, what will they do with them?

Thanks again to Christel, Benjamin and Philip

So, with the publication of the guidelines by the current board, the
expected time frame appears to be that minutes will usually be
published at the earliest 2 weeks after the meeting (I don't expect
minute approval to happen during a "working session"[1]). To be honest,
I not think that this is a time frame that allows Foundation members to
closely follow what is happening and to engage with the Board if there
is a topic of interest to them.

I remember that in the student-council we generally published draft
minutes immediately after the meeting. This publication was posted on a
board (inside the university building), had to happen within three days
and would be signed by the secretary and session chair. The formal
approval would only happen in the next meeting (usually one week

Now, I don't expect that we can do exactly the same thing for the GNOME
Board. On the one hand there because are likely more topics that are of
a sensitive nature, on the other hand because it does not seem like a
good idea to post such preliminary minutes to a public mailing list.

But maybe it is possible to create a faster path for information to
reach the membership. One thing I can imagine is to create a members
only mailing list specifically for posting preliminary minutes. But I
am really not sure whether such changes are at all feasible.
That said, this seems like a topic that may be worth exploring further,
for example by talking about it as part of a public "working session"
of the Board.
