As you may remember, the report was very long, and even though I speeded
through it, I did not notice it since I wouldn't ever expect it there :) The
fact you published it before doesnt make arguments less valid though.

I do agree we need some procedure, I am just not sure this is the right

Just to be super clear: the board approved this procedure explicitely in a
vote? (I can't find the resolution yet on foundationwiki)
