The email could be set to forward to the SOB members or where ever you would like, although it is not listed on the bog for now. I did not want to post that unless you want to start using it.

It's potentially a place that is easy for the SOB to post things that are of a general FAQ type nature that periodically come up and already confuse people by the absence of answers to the questions.
* who is authorized to sign on the SOB's behalf for the putative SFLC contract.
* What is the release process?
* What is the SOB decision making process
For now I'm just grabbing stuff that goes by on the list that seems important in this regard.
