RE: Current standards/criteria for 'Undefined Behavior'

What Brian is asking for here is something we absolutely should be 
doing to host a healthy board community. My schedule has been chaotic 
recently and I haven't been able to attend the calls like I normally 
do. Posting these types of issues to the list would give me a way to 
contribute to the conversation when I cannot be on the calls. I am sure 
others on the board share the same view on this as Brian and me.

We have talked about this quite a few times, but change has been slow 
and incomplete. How do we make this a standard practice going forward?
