I guess I agree up until June. I can't find anything since June 
at http://linux.org.au/minutes/. I realise the need to keep
sensitive stuff out but that seems a bit extreme. Edited down
versions sans legal stuff would have been appreciated. I have 
had a look at the Wiki, but that only seems to have action items 
which are not very informative.

It is a bit rough on the existing committee members standing for
re-election because it is hard to see what they have been up to
for the last six months coming into the election.

I would like to see simple straight forward minutes (with legal 
stuff embargoed if required) more readily available this year.

And a newsletter with a bit of gratuitous self promotion of all 
the hard work you guys are doing would be a nice touch. It 
doesn't have to be a big production, I thought Pia's email 
was pretty much spot on.

Cheers. I noticed and appreciated it at the time.
