That's still a discussion, where views and directions are given. No
strict decision.

Because I'm a board member does not mean that everything I say in any
discussion is a de-facto board view/decision (thankfully). It can hint
about what my views are and how I would express them in a board
meeting; but it doesn't mean that this will necessarily be what I'll
vote for either.

Not necessarily, but it can happen.

As a reminder:
 - council meeting/decisions are made by team representatives, that
express their team's views;
 - board meeting/decisions are made by board members, that express
their own views, with consideration given to the council (hence teams)
and community views at large + project objectives & means.

That does not prevent individual members of each, out of these
instances, to express their own views, without these having the force
of a rule at once (again, thankfully).

See that with your mentor.
