You can find FESCO's meeting minutes at the fedora meetbot site as well as posted to the firstname.lastname@example.org list after each meeting.
FESCo has a private mailing list for sensitive matters. This list will have as subscribers only the current FESCo members and the Fedora Project Leader. This list should only be used in very rare situations with private information. The FESCo chair will make sure any discussion on this list that doesn't need to be private will be resent to a public forum (FESCo trac, devel list, etc).
