None taken :)

The server was maxing out for client connections, and although s2s has
been a bit laggy/flaky (due to server load bursts, new boxes coming soon I
hope) there were others participating in the room over s2s, maybe it was
just an isolated incident that you couldn't connect.  We do need to have
an alternating schedule for the meetings though, so others can join in
off-hours in some of the meetings.

Found someone else to host what?  The conference?  Except for the problems
above, which are being corrected, the foundation conferences should
appropriately be hosted on the foundation's servers :)

Just myself, James, and a jabber.com dude (likely bauer) so far, two
positions open yet.  James's relationship to jabber.com is one where he
advises them, not vice-versa... and although I'm an employee, my
relationship is similiar, I'm not directed or told what to do w.r.t.
jabber.org activities (and have a sign-on contract saying so back from
when I started in '99).

I guess whatever the "tigris project" is in reference to, is something
that is not public or I just haven't been keeping up, so I don't know what
that is supposed to mean.

Nope, it only takes one person to veto (-1) any vote in the council.

I'm sorry things have come across that way, but I'm quite sure it's not
the case and have hopefully helped show that.  Let me know if there's
anything else I can help w/ or confusion to clear up.
