Subject: Re: [chairs] Is it? RE: [chairs] OASIS Organizational Voting is Somewhat Absurd?


Unfortunately there are only 25 people on that "members discuss" list - and
most are not actually just run of the mill members.

If you really want to make discussion happen you should have a full member
list with everyone automatically on it.

However - I suspect the real story is that people are extremely list-averse
because of email overload.

Hence - whether or not the Ubermensche like it or not - this remains the
best forum for informed discussion
within OASIS itself - and for coordination through to the full membership.

Just stating the obvious.
