Hope you don't mean Council or maemo...

Sure tjing - still, it doesn't mean, that Board need a censor in the middle. Council, for example, also isn't meant to solve moderation disputes about, let's say, TMO - it doesn't mean that we need sub-council to filter noise coming at Council...

Thinking like that, we can build useless ladder of buerocratic structures, that doesn't have any purpose, other than justifying own existence. Which seems like already started, with Council "filter".

As suggested month or two ago, we don't have so much volounteers, to "assign" them not importtant roles. In times of Foundation and Board, no one was able - up to date - to highlight any important factor justifying Council existence, other than (rather not-so-important) "noise filter".

What is even more strange, not even things like lack of interest in Council from Community side (forcing Board candidates to double-candidate for Council, to let it form at all - which defeats the "noise filter" rationale!) made "party leaders" re-think merit of keeping Council.

Not that Community's doubts really matter - sadly, "leadership" will do what they want, and no one is putting that into doubt. Still, as said earlier, asking questions and presenting opinions/doubts isn't crime on mailing list (yet). Wouldn't be surprised, if last one is going to change for worse, soon, though.
