[Foundation] jabber.com for president

There are two directors pending for the Board.  They are both from brand
name companies and these two individuals should provide the same level of
enthusiasm and value that James Barry demonstrated yesterday in the text
conference.  Since they are from large companies, though, there are just
procedures that need to be followed before any announcements can be made.

Again, these are interim board members until the Foundation is
well-established.   Then, the Board, like the Council, will be up for
election.

close").

(section 8.1):

"The Jabber Council shall act upon the affirmative vote of 
a majority of the members of the Council voting."

That said, the role of the Council within the overall 
structure of the corporation is limited to overseeing the 
JIGs.  Other than that is it purely advisory.  In other 
words, the Council is almost certainly not going to be 
dealing with issues that expose it to direct conflicts of 
interest.

Couple of other questions popped up while I read this as 
well.  Who are the Directors of the Foundation?  And have 
officers been appointed yet?  

(...and does anyone else see opportunities for some pretty 
awful Isaac Asimov puns in the future? :)
