Hi Sanghee,

I will try to do this, yes.  A lot of that is my fault, trying to fit 
everything in. Over the years it seems now that the community has 
matured we're dealing with tougher issues.

Jody made a suggestion to me offline, of a short hangout (audio at 
least) just for new board members soon.  Would that help things?  I can 
explain more about topics that were thrown onto new board members, like 
infrastructure needs, roles, and give an opportunity to ask questions - 
during a meeting there is often little chance to ask questions.   Would 
that help?

I feel I've got too short time/background infos to think over the items/agendas that was added at the last minute.
