Thanks to Mike Taylor and Peter Saint-Andre.

There is a thread at 
It was suggested that the discussion be taken on the Members list.

I like what Dave Cridland wrote:

  "the right environment to support that, and responsible for ensuring that
   people use those protocols we create.  I think we should - as a community
   - be supporting Board's activities at least as much as we support
   the XEPs themselves."

In my opinion there isn't much a Board can do without a community to 
support its activities.  I read the message at 
http://mail.jabber.org/pipermail/members/2013-March/007104.html  The 
following is something worth highlighting:

   "learn to accept and make good usage of smaller contributions."

Every contribution matters.  Taken by itself it may not be 
visible.  It is however what is sorely needed in a volunteer 
organization.  The XSF does good work.  It has the ability to do 
better as it has talented members.  The better way to do that is 
through discussion where everyone has a say and everyone can 
contribute in his or her way.
