I am increasingly concerned that the GNSO minutes are overly long and detract from our work.
The current set is 17 pages long. Finding the relevant details - actions we agreed upon -
is hard.

Is it really necessary to record every detail of "he said" "she said" and "he said again"? 
If people want a minute by minute record we have the audio file.
A set of minutes should reflect:
1. Who was there
2. What was discussed (including key questions but not every question).
3. What was agreed.

This level of detail seems to have grown. Past DNSO and GNSO minutes were not so lengthy.
Has there been direction from the Chair to the GNSO secretary to do them in this way?
If so why?
If not, lets ask for shorter minutes please.
