- I think we resolved your item 1a (quorum interpretation) wrt the LC,  
at least.  Is there some other outstanding item related to quorums here?

We could do a "temperature check" on how the leadership balloting  
process is going, and also do an around-the-room and ask if group  
chairs are running into procedural questions or issues in general.

This all sounds (very) good.  This general category would amount to  
advice for the BoT, yes?  We can't make those changes ourselves.

Since this could be time-consuming, we may want to deal with it up  
front and be ruthless about agenda portioning...

+1 on Colin's suggestion of a conformance item.

Other stuff: Should we discuss what LC meetings should/could be like  
in the post-bootstrap era?  I anticipate that we might want to meet  
half as often but for a longer timeslot (every two weeks, for 1.5  
hours?).  I would love to do a roundtable at every LC meeting that  
lets chairs give an update that explicitly calls out to intended  
Kantara-based liaisons and asks for feedback.  The LC is the best  
connection we have for all that well-intentioned Section 10 charter  
stuff. :-)
