Thank you for your letter, Tim.

Is there any particular rationale (other than historical comparison to
Nokia->Council->community), for avoiding direct communication between
Board and Community, and using Council as a proxy between those two?

I'm quite concerned, as it seems that view on effectiveness of
Council<->Nokia cooperation wasn't always positive (or, more
precisely, was *rarely* seen as acting as it should).
