Who said that you had to wait until the meeting? I never once even implied that. Instead, I suggested regular meetings so we get *at least* $n meetings a year and get consistent updates.

Having served as a Trustee before, I can tell you that having a set meeting time would have likely helped us out, tremendously. Had we a set time to share information with other teams, we would not have likely lost our standing in NM. Without those meetings, we ended up letting things slide longer and longer, as there was no pressure to get anything done. -- Chris Gianelloni Release Engineering Strategic Lead Games Developer
