Sounds good. How do you imagine this would look like? Just the votes or a written "minority report" that summarizes the discussion? I guess this could turn into much work for you peepz. Previous boards had public meetings where you could listen in or see a log and see how a decision was reached, that would be one way to know what's going on.
That's really interesting. Does this mean that previously the board meetings were completely open and everybody could join? How this exactly worked? Was there any information that could not be completely open discussed? In that case, what kind of things and how this worked with the open meetings? Do you (or someone else) have any clue why this changed?
My understanding is that we never had public BOARD meetings - at least we never have since I was involved in any openSUSE Board, which has always had bi-weekly conference calls and an annual face to face meeting.
But we did have public PROJECT meetings, organised by the Board, where anyone in the Project could raise anything and discuss anything, much as we still do asynchronously in this list. At openSUSE Conferences we'd also have one of those meetings jointly in IRC and in the room, often as the closing session.
The Board stopped organising these IRC meetings after many months of the Board being the only attendees and there being no agenda items proposed. We kept the oSC closing Q&A tradition though.
