[OpenID board] Location of minutes (and open board meetings)

Brett, I appreciate Liberty's commitment to openness -- the irony I was
referring to is that "Open" is part of the OpenID Foundation's name.

 

Scott, I think this is important enough (and so does Nat) - can I ask for it
to be placed on the agenda of the next board call?

 

Thanks,

 

=Drummond

Although I appreciate having one of our "best practices" highlighted here, I
have to say that there is nothing ironic about Liberty Alliance's commitment
to openness or our leadership in that regard.

Board members:

Nat Sakimura makes the point to us below (and to me offline) that we have
not been making it clear where the board meeting minutes are posted after
they have been approved. Also, a two-week lag before approval and posting is
a long time, especially for active topics.

And a third point Nat makes is particularly ironic: the Liberty Alliance
holds open board meetings (any Liberty member may attend) while the OpenID
Foundation holds closed board meetings. The exception is executive sessions,
of course, but Liberty schedules those separately.

I think we strongly consider the same policy.
