This is simple and very easy to understand.

I also ended up not having my core dev app heard the first time around
because while Quorum was reached, it was reached 45 minutes in to the
meeting and I was unfortunately unable to participate past the end of
the meeting.

It struck me that the questioning can easily be done via email as can
voting. Even better that it be done in (mostly) immutable bug comments.
