I appreciate summary reports and the time put into preparing them, however often they can be managed.  Thank you.

Related, it’s been 20 days since the last comment on the request to officially rename FPL to 0BSD.  It’s been 48 days since the request was submitted.  There seems to be consensus and discussion seems to have quiesced, or at least I don’t believe any dissent has been vocalized once all questions were answered.

Can the change proceed or is a board vote required?  It’s been noted by several that this rename request is in unprecedented procedural territory.  I would appreciate knowing for my own planning and usage.
