Me neither. "Board" has the longer tradition here, it's just not the
"board of directors" anymore, which only applied when we were trying
to create a separate Squeak Foundation.
Idea: I liked the term "Sugar Labs Oversight Board", and not only
because of its acronym. Does anybody have a backronym for "SQUIBs"? ;)

Hehe. Not a bad thought :)

Don't think so, but in the past we usually chose a spokesperson for
the board, and appointed single members for specific tasks (like for
talking to the Software Freedom Conservancy).
