It would be reasonable to expect the governors of a school (for example) to 
come to ad hoc decisions between meetings, in case of exigencies.  But in my 
experience these decisions would then be minuted at some point in the future.  
If that's "extreme", I suspect most governing bodies are full of 
extremists :-)

This is what I said in my last post - the "should be minuted" is the point 
which some seem to be glossing over.  

Can the free software movement can dispense with organisational niceties just 
because it is the free software movement?  This would appear to be the view 
in some quarters.
