[Owasp-board] Timing of Board meeting agenda items

Hi Tobias,

I really was frustrated again today that one agenda item took up nearly the
entire hour. We really need to work on being fair to all agenda items by
being more forceful on timing, or we need to extend Board meetings to cope
with the lesser number of items we can realistically push through in an

I am sick of items that are super important getting a couple of minutes at
the end or pushed again and again. It's simply not productive. I've got the
Bylaws discussion coming up in November, and we didn't even get through the
old business from September this month.

The Benchmark discussion in my view merits a special board meeting before
November's meeting, as I really felt that it didn't get the discussion
during the main time of the meeting. How far did we get with the Benchmark
discussion after I had to leave, and are there any concrete proposals to
fix the general case (rather than this specific project?)

Additionally, if I recall correctly, Jim had a confidential item we had to
leave from September's meeting. Is there any method we can do to get that
done before November?
