I have kept close track, and unfortunately the DMB only reached quorum
38.46% of the time in 2019 (10 of 26 meetings).

Email voting has been done by the DMB very rarely; for example, there
is currently a vote by email pending since Feb 3 (6 days ago), after a
7 day period for any questions from the DMB (Jan 27 - Feb 3), and only
2 DMB members have provided a vote so far.

I agree.

I have submitted myself as a nominee for the DMB, and if elected (if
there are enough interested candidates to have an election) I hope to
help improve this process.
