As discussed at UBZ we will be introducing weekly Dapper Development
Status Meetings, starting next week, once the dust from UBZ settles. 

The purpose of these meetings is to provide a quick (prepared)
run-though of the status of the goals you are working on. This is to
ensure that all goals are on-track, and are not blocked or blocking
anything else unnecessarily.

The 3 main objectives of these meetings is to discuss:
 * The progress made on the goal since the last meeting.
 * The blocks and current risks/issues present - especially those you
need help in solving.
 * The planned activity for the coming week.

In order to make the most of the short time we have available for these
meetings and make sure we get an update from everyone please be sure
come to arrive prepared. You will need to make a few notes in advance.
For each goal which you are assigned to please list the title of the
goal and a brief summary (a line will do) of the 3 items.

When it is your turn to discuss your goal you can them simply cut and
paste your few lines into the channel. Thereafter minute or 2 will be
given to discuss further as necessary.

Due to the number of goals and team members we will need to progress
through the goals rapidly and will not be able to take time to dwell on
any particular issue for any length of time. Should more detail or
discussion be required, this will be noted and it will be addressed
off-line. (If appropriate a separate meeting may be scheduled for
emergency or contentious issues).

Please make the time to attend these meeting, but if for whatever reason
you are unable to attend, please be sure to send your updates to me in
e-mail format no later than 2 hours before the start of the meeting, so
that I can represent the goal for you. If there are any complication
with your goal please elaborate on it.

In order to be fair these meetings will rotate on a 6 hour progression,
i.e. 08:00, 14:00, 20:00 and 04:00 UTC, and will be held on a Thursday
(or Wednesday or Friday depending on where you are so check carefully!).
