Oh boy, you left that one wide open!  Leaving aside a lot of things in
the Real World(tm) which weren't done at meetings and weren't minuted,
I've been on several committees now wher a lot of the decisions are
taken outside meetings, by phone calls (not conference calls, which
could be classed as a 'meeting' of sorts, but individual calls to
several of the committee members) and not minuted (indeed, one committee
I was on we kept no minutes at all, we kept our own lists of things we
had to do and that was all).  I can assure you that theings did indeed

(And if you really believe that all governmental decisions are made at
meetings and minuted -- I have this land in Florida you might like, and
I can get a bridge really cheap...)
