Subject: Re: [chairs] IMPORTANT: need to set up your membership rosters


You're going to screw up other functionality if you call an observer a 
member. Only TC members should have the Member role. (And if someone is 
a long-time observer, and wants to contribute -- or at least you want 
them to be able to post messages, why don't they become a member?)
