If my memory serves me correctly, the reason that discussions around Gold
Member applications is confidential is to protect the current board members
from the legal ramifications of their comments.

Tristan, is this a correct interpretation?  If so, I think this is might be
a good first item to cut from the confidential list. It is imperative that
the community know what is going on wrt companies trying to join the
OpenStack Foundation.  Just because a board member doesn't want to say
something publicly does not make it confidential.
