You earlier reported about the board in two messages:
You reported that the board was not comfortable with the thoroughness
of the discussion of the transitive quality of the licence.
(Eminently reasonable, since before that time most participants in
the discussion had mistakenly thought that it was equivalent to the
simple practice of GPL'ing your old version.)
and on 2009-02-17:
You reported that a discussion among the board had occurred which
raised a particular problem with the way that open-source licences
are vulnerable to non-compliance.
Thank you for reporting these notes to the list, but I would also
like to see the actual minutes, so I can tell who was present, where
the meeting was held, what was said in more detail, and what binding
motions if any were taken.
