Just for clarity, I would like to point out that the list the other
board members see is not the full list but an excerpt. I have never seen
the master file but the list the other board members get does, for
example, not contain email addresses and I'm sure we have them on file
somewhere. Should the master file be lost for some reason, it would be
quite a bit of work to restore it from the excerpt.

Also, some kinds of analyses (e.g. "how many people from the top five
well-known OSM companies have signed up with their business address?")
can only be performed by those who know the email address.

I should probably just have asked Henk directly to add that column. I
freely admit I never did. Maybe it was just an oversight on his part.
Under normal circumstances you'd just fire off a quick email to your
colleague and say "hey, you seem to have forgotten that". But if that
same colleague has let you wait for over a year to give you any list at
all, maybe then you already hear the answer in your head: "What do you
need the email column for?"
