I suggest the Board, when formed, starts from the existing policy 


I think all the clauses are reasonable, but from now on that will be 
for the Board to decide.

It was me! If the policy is clear, then there's no room for FUD. 

Perhaps it's because I have some background as an editor, and have 
always written very short pieces myself. In the days of the 'blue 
pencil' used by newspaper editors, it was said that a really good 
editor could condense a full page of text into just a handful of the 
most important words.

I think there should be a linuxaudio.org meeting there anyway - I 
envisaged a sort of 'round table'. I put the idea to Matthias Nagorni 
already, who liked the idea and said he would put it to Frank

I am planning to be there - at the moment I'm trying to get magazine 
interest in the conference to a) increase publicity and b) help pay 
for the trip, but there have been no firm commitments from editors so
