The Board minutes are all I can think of.  You are always welcome to
tune into Board meetings on BigBlueButton and hear the decisions being
made in real time, of course. 
https://wiki.osmfoundation.org/wiki/Monthly_Board_Meetings  If you want
to compile a board decision digest of representative decisions and to
circulate it in Polish, there is nothing to stop you from doing that. 
It's all public information.
