written structure actually reflect our actual structure -- and then
continually modify our structure through the normal* governance
Now: There is one huge document
Soon: I will break it down into an easier-to-read format.
Now: It's living on github 
In the future: it will live on githost, along with the rest of our

Anyway, the Board doesn't actually exist yet. There's a "steering
committee" which hasn't been as active since we got a clearer team
structure otherwise. So really, we shouldn't act like there's a Board
place. The status is that there's a plan for a Board that is *overdue*
for being in place but still needs to be done.
I will modify the document to reflect this when I work on it tomorrow.
The GM doesn't necessarily handle petitions and board elections, those
things aren't clarified at this time, are going to be specified in the
Bylaws. I'm not sure how that's set but it's part of the co-op issues
bigger than Holacracy. Maybe it'll be tasked to the GM or maybe
of Holacracy via some other committee, not sure.
I know. I used the GM as a dumping ground for the Misc accountabilities
that -- if someone were to do it, it would be you. It's the appropriate
place for them right now. At some point, we will likely break some of
those accountabilities off into a separate role, which may or may not
be filled by you.
Overall, I definitely see other issues I'd like clarified and roles
adjusted and different people fit into roles, but I agree that this
provides a start and we can use the governance process to improve
That's the idea!
