> The Board of Directors created a subcommittee at the February meeting to discuss transparency and communication processes.  One deliverable of the subcommittee was to create an official Transparency Policy, outlining the steps the Board is taking to be transparent, and to provide clear explanation around the types of information that is confidential or embargoed. 
> The subcommittee presented an outline for the Transparency Policy at the April board meeting, and then the Foundation's legal counsel DLA Piper created an initial draft. Please view the draft policy here, and comment in the Google doc or via the mailing list: https://docs.google.com/a/openstack.org/document/d/1sGBtza-mjRXcDzFBSS9aUrYlAtu1se-eerHZN16DPyU/edit
> The main questions remaining for me are the mechanics of opening the Board mailing list and document store for confidential info (reference 2.1e in the draft), and Mark McLoughlin and Monty Taylor/CI team have been working on those pieces.
> Please comment by July 19, so we can incorporate feedback before the next board meeting scheduled August 6. Once finalized, the Transparency Policy will be published on the OpenStack Governance wiki.
