First of all, AFAIK, the last wireless meeting was a week ago Thursday, and I never heard anything about a "fiscal partnership."  I'm not opposed to such a partnership, I just don't want our course of action to be decided by "secret meetings."  To this point, CU-wireless has grown well as a free and open organization; I'd like to see this policy of free and open conversation continue.

Sascha, if you wanted the information to remain confidential, you should have announced it at the meeting (as others have done) rather than post it to the list.  Our website links directly to the mailing list archives without authentication.  Therefore, anyone who visits the website can access the archives, including your most recent message.
