I don't agree with this limitation. First, don't forget that the
Trustees election is a "meeting" of sorts and that it isn't conducted
through IRC, but through mail. Also, as RB was arguing, why should we
limit ourselves to #gentoo-trustees on the freenode IRC network? The
point about the 10 day advanced notice is also important.

If some day trustees end up meeting on LWE, FOSDEM, Gentoo-UK or some
other exhibit/show, do you really want them to have to update the
bylaws so that they can conduct a meeting?

What about the following?
All meetings must be openly available to the public to attend and
will be announced at least 10 days before the meeting.
Meetings will usually be conducted electronically in the
#gentoo-trustees IRC channel on the freenode network.
