There is always some urgency to fix problems once a fix is identified - for
instance, it was good to immediately get some of Bishakha's time back from
administrative work.  And we would have made other changes (such as no
longer allowing non-recusal abstentions on votes, to match what Florida law
recognizes) in practice immediately, even if we did not officially pass
those bylaws changes.

But perhaps your question is misdirected: the issue of transparency is not
related to urgency. The bylaws already require 10 days notice; we just need
to make this public.

Let's take further discussion to the board manual talk page, to bring it
closer to any procedural changes that get implemented.
