You also need to make sure that you don't say or do something that can
cause problems with our legal council, such as anything that is said
between the trustees and the lawyer can not be made public, no matter
how informed you want to make the rest of the devs.  Some people may
think "oh that's easy" but  it's not. Anything related to our lawyer
that we want to be made public needs to be run by them first just to
cover ourselves.

I'd like to run again.. I've been handling most of the legal stuff since
zhen got sidetracked by other things, and it's one of those things that
i enjoy doing..:)
