Farrukh, you asked last week for scribe instructions.
I found a couple pointers[1,2] but I think I'll just
restate the essentials:

Within a day or two of the meeting[3], the scribe should send
a record of the meeting for review.

Important/essential parts of the meeting record are:

  - a pointer to the agenda

  - roll call

  - decisions and actions;
	in particular, the decision to approve
	the minutes of the previous meeting, which
	provides a handy pointer

	it's important to record abstentions and
	objections.


It's nice to summarize the discussion to the extent
that you can, but noone should have overly high expectations
there. If you want to know every word that was said,
you have to be there.

If there's anything else that's really important to go
in the record, the chair should point it out to the
scribe explicitly.

hmm... it says actions must be available with 24 hours. I
prefer not to have separate actions and minutes.
