I'd suggest switching the order of these two.

I mentioned the possibility of doing this in a reply to John Goerzen. It
should also deal with fixing unclear or inaccurate parts of the bylaws,
as I explained in that reply. Also, we should state who is in the
Membership, Administrative, and Open Source Committees (the only ones
that exist right now AFAIK.

Can I suggest, instead, that it adjourn no later than an hour after it
begins, but in any case no later than 21:30 UTC? This is in case some
board members are late. I am suggesting this to give us the maximum
possible chance of meeting quorum.
