It is early days in the process of publishing the materials.  I and
other Board members have individually been encouraging publication of
the materials.

As far as I know there is not a formal criteria that has been
established yet.  Currently the decision rests with the General Counsel
from a risk perspective.  The board has not been involved in selecting
text to be redacted.   I guess it can be appealed through the
Reconsideration process in the bylaws or through the Ombudsman office.

The process and degree to which materials are published is likely to be
a topic at the Board retreat next week.  I lean more towards the GNSO
processes (audio recording and open access to materials accept as
explicitly approved by Board not to do so).
