You're right, and we will.

Mind that you haven't read the follow-up on that list, and it says there 
exactly what you've worded here. I sure hope that in the future, if you 
hear about what is being discussed (or actually in this case; just being 
submitted to) on our little private mailing list, you will appreciate 
that it is:

1) being directed to this list instead, by the other board members, or
2) put on the agenda for a board meeting (mind the agenda is being sent 
to this list as well)

Also note that e-mail coming from either *@fedoraproject.org or 
*@redhat.com email addresses is directly accepted on the board's list[1] 
so that in effect it is a very good feedback / contact address for all 
of us, too.

So, what we're working at now is setting a date to register at the 
German Authorities (it'll include some traveling for all of us), during 
which we'll most probably have a short board meeting as well. The agenda 
is being made up as we go and ideas firm up about what it is we can do 
and how we can do such. This agenda will be sent around by the time the 
date for registering and meeting is set, and will therefore have some 
time to collect feedback on the items on the agenda from all of you.

Kind regards,

Jeroen van Meeuwen
