Changed the subject line again.. ( Subject deviation again :) ) 

Hi Praveen,
May I ask , what is not really clear about the chapter ? Wikimedia India chapter is registered now as a legal entity in India [1] in Jan 2010 ; there is an Executive committee with 7 members , the office bearers are [2] Arun Ramarathnam,  President ; BalaSundaraRaman Lakshmanan, Secretary ; Arjuna Rao Chavala, Treasurer etc

May be it is time for the chapter to open up the membership to the community?

or even making the agenda & meeting minutes of the Wikimedia India chapter EC available to all like the Wikimedia Foundation Board [3] ( so that these confusions to "common Wikimedians" can be avoided) ?

If there are still any misunderstandings/unclear things, the EC members must be happy to answer them.

I'm all excited to see the Wikimedia India chapter getting more active and the chapter & community working closely in the coming days.

N.B. I am not speaking on behalf of the chapter , neither am I a EC member/ordinary member. My understandings are based on various threads on the mailing lists.

chapter and none of its activities are clear to common wikimedian. :)
