By your question you seem to misinterpret my mail.

I do not think that there is any minimum number of meetings that a person needs to attend. One could attend every meeting, yet sit in the back and update Facebook or stream movies …. rendering that person experienced at attending meetings but inexperienced at leading a policy discussion, building consensus or understanding the PDP.

I think a candidate (personally or those nominating her/him) must address the question of experience when advancing a persons candidacy. That allows us as a WG an opportunity to make an informed choice of a co-chair.

A list of meetings attended may be useful but is certainly not a suitable criterion for “experience”.
