The details of AC meetings are a matter of public record and are
published in the AC's meeting minutes for all to see at:

The AC not only pays attention to and respects minority points of

Mr. Herrin believes that a whiff of dissent ought to be a cue for a
bad case of analysis paralysis.  I for one disagree.
