AIUI most of this information should already published through the board

IMHO the workings of legal affairs are currently unnecessarily
mysterious. so, creating a public document that describes the roles and
responsibilities of the various players would be a useful:

* codification exercise in itself
* resource for projects
* public explanation of process

an outline linking names and roles seemed neutral place to start the

but if no one sees any value in documenting this, then i've plenty of
other stuff to keep me busy...
