I dunno - with old board members, new board members, and people who should
have been elected (!!!) helping out on this list, I think there's a lot of
communication between this list and "the people who make actual decisions"
(at least in Foundation terms, as opposed to developer terms - but I think
that's entirely sensible for the marketing team).

I think the solution to this will end up being leadership by example, and
setting good goals. There is definitely some friction between advertising
and marketing goals, and to a certain extent the team is named incorrectly.
What we need to be focusing on is 'advocacy', which takes both into account.
