This all sounds fine with me. Ted, IIRC you were the one that got the
ball rolling initially on this; can you review and close the loops on
any follow up tasks to notify the community and so on?

So, there are some instances where we have accounts on sites like
twitter or deviantart where I or someone else may be the only person
who has the password.
How do we want to go about centralizing, securing, yet sharing this
info with those who need it?
Also, in the case of Twitter, since Conservancy had to provide the
legal information to Twitter for us to get control of that account, a
conservancy address is the password recovery mechanism. Personally, I
actually like the feel of that. It seems appropriate that they serve
in that protective role IMHO.
What are people's thoughts on this subject?
Today I discovered this page:
I think it needs updating or should be archived/deleted?
Somewhere it should say that we are a member of the conservancy (I
couldn't find it in any case) and we should have a link to the
conservancy's website too. Could be something really simple, like a
one-line sentence on this page here:
What are your thoughts?
