Thank you all for having brought back this important topic.
I am one of those who haven't not paid too much attention to it,
because many things move to slowly I haven't seen this coming so
Yes there are meeting (and meeting minutes), but we can't expect all
contributors to know what is going on every teams they are involved
That said, important information or when contributors are asked to
give their voice, should come on a really low traffic mailing list
(like announce@), to be able to target the thread more efficiently
(CCing amba at the announce email should do it).

This would have my +1.


BTW, thanks to the actual FAmSCo members for their work, having a seat
imply responsibilities and so much time!
As said previously, having things done quickly could hurt but
sometimes we need to take decisions (last time it was with the trans
team about Transifex.net ^^).
And thanks for amba who are able to bring hot topic to other amba missing them…
