Looking at the proposed changes I disagree, they are necessary.  The
current constitution requires keeping a list of names and postal or
residential address for all members.  And that information must be
accessible.  The proposed changes removes the postal/residential address
from the members list and adds the email address, but the email address
is kept private.

So, the short summary of the changes was a bit short.  ;)

So just creating another list which includes the email address doesn't
solve the issue of by default having the postal/residential address

I think that Mary is correct that section 7 should be updated.
