Thanks for your question. In fact I do not have a lot to add to what
Martin said. Some things are indeed just not suitable for wider
distribution. Martin gives already the example of disputes among
community members, but I also think about sensitive staffing issues.
E.g. should everybody (even the membership) really know that a staff
member wants a few days off because of health issues or a family
In what I do agree with you Rod, is that we probably better could
state what kind of issues are not for public release. Let’s see if I
can work something out to make this clearer.
