I might ask that if this is carried out (I don't see any major problem
with it myself), that more board discussion is done on -private, to let

I can't think of anything in recent history which was both a) only
discussed by the board via email or in the IRC meeting and b) had good
contributing member input, but such things can be fairly common.
