Ian,
Thanks for getting these published. Would recommend reviewing best
practices for publishing minutes. I'm not a believer that discussions be
document. Instead, document motions, who made them and the outcome.
Especially read up on decision made in executive session. Actions taken in
executive sessions can come back to bite you if you don't document it
properly.

I have no problem with using github since it is well designed for change
management. If it is to be the depository of record, the approved minutes
should be open for the community to review.

Thanks for the hard work,
Clifford
