No not the SC. This is the first attempt taking into consideration everything from the beginning and till 30-Jan-2014. As mentioned, going forward we will try to produce a weekly summary and based on all the comments and feedback we have received so far, we will also try to finalise the future summaries through a more cooperative method (wiki/etherpad - to be further discussed within the SC).

Will be considered for future release.

Of course YES, as I mention in one of my previous post, these are not conclusive judgement, and we should be able challenge them and update when and where needed.

Yes right from the beginning the archive of its mailing has been open:

Now that the SC section is created on the web site, minutes of all its meeting/calls will be published (currently you can still read them from the archives).

Please keep sending your reasonable feedback in order to improve the transparency. From what I'm witnessing on this list people seems to have different view and standard related to transparency, which we have to continuously managed through a balanced and efficient process.
