Hi Bill / MJ,

This was sent out in Message-ID: <20061118230811.GG11541 at>

I'm not sure why this didn't get through to spi-announce. For info,
meetings are currently held on the third tuesday of each month, at
19:00UTC, on #spi on

Really MJ, WHY do you keep coming up with this stuff? I see you're
managing to inject your personal prejudices into simple questions, and
turning them into accusations again.

Why would any resolution stop an announcement being sent out? You seem
to be implying that the board have a hidden agenda. I would suggest you
call a special meeting to withdraw the board. From our by-laws, you
require a request of one third of the membership. This means you need
126 members to agree with you.

You mean these minutes, which were published at 2006-06-20 23:46 ?

This hasn't changed since 2003.
