We seem to have a problem to get it on the table, which is what we have
attempted to do for the last year.

What would you suggest??

*sigh* That's a big accusation to make. I would imagine that it's more
of an honest mistake by a very busy, under-appreciated JSF secretary.

Having a private conference isn't going to solve anything. Let's just
get this thing in the open. If the JSF board won't talk about it, don't
just go find a closet to discuss the issue in.
This is the way wars are started -- unfounded accusations and a blatant
attempt to build a backing by taking discussions underground.
