Can we just use their web site for the notice, agenda, and minutes, and
continue to use our own for everything else?  How can they stop us?

It's frequently easier to get forgiveness than permission.

Do we need to do this at 185, or can we wait until INCITS forces our

BTW, how can they force us not to use the GMU mail server?  Could we use
their server only for meeting notices and mail ballots?

I have the new format for ballot comments, but I don't have anything
special for votes.  Do you have it?
