On October 16th, Bill Washburn sent the membership committee proposal to the
board-private mailing list in a thread "Ranked candidates for OIDF
Boardmembership".  There began a back-and-forth dialog about how the
candidates
were ranked, and a discussion about whether it was important that board
members implement OpenID.  Opinions were expressed on both sides.


On October 21st, Dick Hardt reintroduced this motion to the board-private
list:

I motion that we accept [redacted] and [redacted] as coporate board members
> and
> add [redacted] (presuming he accepts) as a community board member.
> [redacted]'s seat will come up for election at the next election.
>

(I additionally redacted the community member's name, as I don't follow the
logic of partial confidentiality.)

Martin seconded the motion.

I asked if the motion could be split into three separate nominations.  Dick
replied no, that the motion stood as it was.

David voted -1 due to the "current ongoing discussion in the thread titled
"Ranked candidates for OIDF Board membership"".

This morning, this thread "URGENT: New Board members motion" began on the
public board list.

Before we move on;  Dick and others, does this match your recollection.  Do
you feel it provides sufficient context?
