I think the working groups are different than the board meetings,
there is legal merit for a board to operate on a written minutes-only

However, in the context of an open source focused working group, if
someone has something to say that they would not be comfortable saying
in public email, or saying in a voice recording, then IMHO, perhaps
they should not say it at all.

Companies need to have an open source policy and need to ensure their
participating staff are properly trained and able to speak in this
kind of open, public, and archived, environment.

It is not different from a public mailing list conversation.
