Our two-year-old 30-household neighborhood is trying to create an

previous decisions AND the consensus discussions leading up to them.

In an effort to keep from reinventing a wheel that's surely out there
somewhere in the CoHo realm, I searched the archives.  Found some

Pathways Cohousing has developed a Decision Data Base of all consensus
decisions pulled out of meeting minutes.  The data base can be searched by
date or by any word in the decision.  Getting everything input is a
time-consuming drag and is not yet complete . . .

but am still hoping for nuts-and-bolts "How To" (or How NOT To)  advice.

Comments, please!
