Those meetings have already happened, the CC had them. We have been
given Canonical's position on the matter and passed that on to those who
made the inquiry.

The process has run it's course, the only issue left is how people want
to move forward with the answer that has been given.

The CC has an open Q&A session on Thursday at 1600 UTC, we will answer
as many questions as we have time for. We will not, however, spend the
full hour on this topic, nor will we be able to give a different answer
than has already been given.

In addition, there are Community roundtable sessions that will be
attended by some members of the Community Team at Canonical should
anybody wish to bring up topics not directly related to the CC.
