A process whereby every committee holds open, widely announced
meetings and where advisor status is granted instantly without
bureaucratic process was discussed, but does not seem to be practiced
by any of the committees.
I don't know if anyone has pointed out to you, but the Communications
Committee holds weekly IRC meetings which are open to the public and
everyone is invited to participate.
These meetings are scheduled on the Meta comcom page,
. I'm sure it was
simply an oversight on your part to use grand generalizations without
being certain of their veracity.
