In a recent email, I made light of this topic, but in a more serious 
vein, I've tried to track down more information about this report: i.e., 
which DSB task force prepared it and who participated.. There is a fair 
amount of information about the DSB on the Federation of American 
Scientists website and on the DSB site itself. Even the links below are 
only tangential to this topic, but are the best I've done so far. Can 
anyone offer better information?


Apparently, the DSB is a panel of 40 members, but the work on topics 
producing final reports such as this one on radiation security is 
performed by subordinate "task forces".

These things are organizational chaos!
