hopefully we can avoid that. i currently sit on a board which does ok 
with more than
10 members, having a well controlled meeting agenda is key. and not all 
board members
are likely to want to chew up time on every point.

the US Chapter working group has been doing pretty well with the weekly 
30 minute
calls. ideally in the long haul there won't be weekly board meetings, 
but the temp board
may have to gradually transition away from that depending on the press 
of business.

in any case, 5 is a good number, i'm ok with 5.
