That’s brilliant Sherif, I’m glad you’ve taken my concerns on board.

All our communications should be open and transparent and only sensitive
matters should be discussed outside of the board list so that the community
has visibility.

> For transparency you also have public links so people can see the

> Alternatively we could use the #board slack channel which has not been

> It should be worth noting that there are only 2 months this year where the
> board mailing list had more that 5 threads (we talk a lot more than that)

> In fact there were a couple months where there were only two threads and
> one month where the only thread for that month was created by someone who
> was not even board member.
