Alice Grevet started maintaining the minutes for the OSM board meetings starting in December, 2010 and has been completing all minutes available since then. In the March 21, 2011 board meeting there was a motion and no discussion to include an officer position of Assistant Secretary and Alice was installed by unanimous consent. According to the Bylaws, OSM can create additional Officer positions as it sees fit. One would ask, however, why the Secretary suddenly could not handle the workload of completing one set of board minutes per month and indeed has not since December, 2010. Now, if there had been open discussion about needing to train a replacement for the Secretary, I could see such a development but not a word was documented. What else is being withheld from the Joomla Community?

On December 4, 2009, Ryan Ozimek, then Secretary of OSM, Inc. posted this blog in which he promised that the minutes of the OSM board meetings would be published in a reasonable time frame. In fact, he stated: "Our meeting minutes have been recorded internally, and more often than not, sent to the board members for approval shortly after the completion of board meetings." which would imply at least publication during the month following the meeting. Unfortunately the publications of OSM minutes has been very inconsistent with the current state as of today having minutes only available through the July, 2011 board meeting. This kind of delay makes it impossible to have a somewhat current discussion with OSM board members on any decisions that might have been made in the past month. The current board secretary frequently refers to the OSM bylaws when someone pushes the issue of why the minutes are not published in a more timely fashion:
