    9. The committee will, once each calendar year, produce a public report of all grants issued and their current status.

    Since it was formed in 2003, I presume there's at least one report somewhere.

    Things like this, and the election results, are not really "News", or "Press Releases" (as described by the perlfoundation.org website) by the actual functioning documents of the foundation itself.

    In fact, looking at the Press Releases for 2004 [perlfoundation.org] it wasn't announced publically.

    Organisations have history, and a lot of that history is in the details, which are available to read if you really really want to. Not many do, but the fact they exist shows accountability. A posting to the president's person journal doesn't really count as a public announcement.

    If the public went to the perl foundation website, they'd never know elections were held at all.
