 +    - Community members ​can ask individual ​committee ​members ​for clarification about existing policies.  ​However, if the question has not yet been publicly ​answered, then the committee member ​must bring the question ​to the full committee ​and the answer must be issued from The Email Address and twitter in accordance with these rules
 +    These rules apply to the benchmark applications used in the IO500 when the context ​is IO500 related but do not apply to general conversations about IO unrelated to IO500.
