Apologies all, this email thread is beyond confusing!

Is there a better place for this conversation? I am unsure if I am being asked to do anything / comment on anything or simply getting caught in an open discussion?

Many thanks,
Laura Gill

The initiatives would most likely be up to the XSF Council instead of the XSF Board.  In my opinion the Council should focus on the technical part while the Board should see to everything else.  There would have to be some collaboration between the two bodies.

At the very least members who are on the XSF Council could have pointed out that such information should be kept up-to-date as the foundation is a legal entity.  It also tells the sponsors how their generous donations are put to good use.
