I generally dislike spending time on read-only mailing lists..  Could the
board report to the foundation membership via the members list from time to
time. Most org's post board meeting minutes which almost no one reads.  But
the board usually reports their general activities and topics on a monthly
newsletter... Perhaps something like for the JSF board could help connect
board activities with the general membership.  I imagine most members, like
me, don't want to be on the board list (of course, board mailing list
enrollment could easily prove me wrong).  :)
