While the existence of private group prompted me to raise the topic, I
think this is a more general issue.

It's also not great if decisions are getting made over lunch at the
Blender institute for eg.

While I was at the institute this didn't happen often (we were aware
that its problematic and tried to avoid),
Nevertheless sometimes when you're in the same room its quicker to
come to some agreement.

For larger topics, it's not great that anyone working remotely can't
see whats going on.
