@Andrew: Thanks for the reminder. :) I think often times we use e-mail more because we're trying to talk one-on-one with someone without needing to burden others. Old habits that I'm sure most people not in a public role find hard to break when entering one such as this.

@Uwe: While I wouldn't generally share e-mail from someone to Council, I can tell you the e-mail we discussed in meeting was a short message letting us know that Quim was still with Nokia, and that he was still available as our contact point, but didn't have much more he could share at that very moment. It was more of a confirmation that he was still there, since speculation on who was gone and who wasn't was a bit rampant at the time...

Is it possible to reference "Quims email"? Thanks

Valid point, Jaffa, thanks for suggesting. It seems that most of the time, it's rather about not trashing public mail with very specific question, aimed @ only one person - but, if we've used it for CA, there is no reason we couldn't do same for anything else, not requiring to remain private.

Thanks for publishing the minutes, it's much appreciated and a definite improvement over the preceding council.

One comment, though: on the IRC/op policies discussion, although I understand the disagreement about the chair emailing X-Fade directly; why isn't that discussion happening on maemo-community (which X-Fade reads, and is sufficiently low traffic (again ;-)) that the council should be subscribed with immediate delivery)?

I would suggest that every time the council is considering using, or emailing someone about, they consider "does this have a reason to be private?" Most of the time the answer should be "no", and so maemo-community should be used instead.
