Because it is not mentioned in Dorothea's email: The meeting will begin
with a closed portion. A quote of the preliminary agenda:
> *Closed portion of meeting*
> The OSMF board will have a closed session portion of the meeting, in order to decide who can vote on the organised editing guidelines' document (which is a new version of the former draft Directed Editing policy). Initially, Heather and Frederik will be briefly "interviewed", to see if they also have a conflict of interest (COI). Then, those board members without a COI will discuss and vote on the other board members' (with a COI) ability to vote. If someone chooses to recuse themselves, then there will be no need to vote on them. Please note that if it is decided that it is necessary to continue to discuss the policy, then there will be also a vote to authorize the board members with a COI to continue to discuss. The outcome will be minuted. 

Why is the discussion whether a board member has to a conflict of
interest not public? Isn't it sufficient to exclude the board member you
are discussing about? This closed section looks very suspicious.

And further down the minutes:
> Copyright page and the national mapping agency of Spain
> Enquiry by the OSM Spaniard community related to a request from the national mapping agency of Spain (Instituto Geogr√°fico Nacional -IGN-) as they want to appear on the openstreetmap.org/copyright page. IGN already appears on the contributors wiki page.

Is the appearance a license requirement in order to use the data?

Best regards
