You're mixing and confusing too many things here.  The point of the
_Board_ is to handle administrative and legal BS.  The _Council_ was only
to approve JEPs/JIGs.

Again, please don't mix Board and Council together, they are completly
different things for different purposes.

The Council has done everything it was given to do, the full archives are
publically available http://mailman.jabber.org/pipermail/council/ for
review, and in light of recent discussion/confusion on it's role, it will
be meeting this week to better define and guide that role of approving

It is due time that the Board have another meeting though, and depending
on the outcome of my last message w.r.t. the trademark, there may even be
some decisions to discuss.  As of yet, I haven't seen anyone directly ask
the Board to make a decision on any administrative/legal issue.
