This was extracted (@ 2023-11-15 18:10) from a list of minutes
which have been approved by the Board.
Please Note The Board typically approves the minutes of the previous meeting at the beginning of every Board meeting; therefore, the list below does not normally contain details from the minutes of the most recent Board meeting.
WARNING: these pages may omit some original contents of the minutes.
Meeting times vary, the exact schedule is available to ASF Members and Officers, search for "calendar" in the Foundation's private index page (svn:foundation/private-index.html).
Several issues were raised: The board@ list is often used to discuss topics that while are relevant to the operation of the board, are not relevant to the majority of the subscribers. The board@ list is often used to discuss topics that should not be discussed widely and sometimes devolve into free-for-all rants. The board@ list should be used to solicit feedback from PMC chairs but in its current usage, is ineffective. There is consensus that splitting the board@ list into at least two lists is advisable: one for official board business; and one for discussions. The members@ list also suffers from a similar issue. @Brett: take the discussion to the board@ list (!) and recommend a solution.
