Every week would be even "better" than every two weeks, but maybe it
will be too much for some people?  (of course nobody will be forced to
attend every week...)

We can decide on the exact frequency on the first IRC meeting.

Currently not many people look at the site often, I suspect (which is
something that must change).

Right, I have been thinking about using Mibbit already, or do you know
about any other solutions like that?

Pierre, do you know if there is a Drupal plugin for that, or do we have
to include it with HTML?

Yes, that's how most Ubuntu IRC meetings work.

I made a (still mostly empty) page for adding agenda topic here: 

Everybody feel free to add your topics!
