The following resolution has been accepted by the Board of Directors
of Software in the Public Interest:

Resolution 2003-03-11.iwj.1


The SPI board alias has been swamped by large volumes of
discussion. This discussion has been very interesting to many
board members, but the quantity makes mailboxes used for normal
board business difficult to use for some board members.


The following solution:

* A new alias
which starts out with the current recipient list of board(at)(dot)

* board-private traffic may include all traffic _except_:
- Debate of any kind which is being contributed to by
or is CC'd to any third party. A third party is someone
without a direct official connection to either SPI or the
question at hand.

* board-private is a restricted email address. It may only be
mailed to by board members or advisers or with specific permission
of board members, and people who should not mail to it should not
be CC'd on mail to board-private.

* If board-private starts to be abused, then lightweight technical
measures should be taken to restrict posting to board members and

The Secretary is asked to implement this as soon as possible, or
alternatively to give Ian Jackson the necessary technical
permissions in which case Ian is asked to implement it as soon as
possible with the Secretary's advice and assistance.
