But the lack of clarity has an effect on other teams as well.  All I'm
suggesting is that the Board make sure to pay attention to the
discussions and changes, and see that they're finished in some finite
time.  Unfortunately my wording above is unclear and when I say, "I'd
recommend that review become a Board action item," it looks like I'm
saying "I'd recommend the Board take on the action of reviewing..."
when what I meant was "I'd recommend the Board review the way the
policy's changed."  Certainly we should be making sure that changes in
one part of the project and the effects they have on other parts of
the project are understood at that level?
