well, preferably people would participate in the sessions at the
conferences, there are VOIP options, the specs get edited publicly in
gobby etc, so its very easy to take part (and thanks to gobby to even
write your own parts in specs from home). i agree that we should be more
wordy about whats happening and when its happening during conferences
(and also about how to take part) but reverting written specs that have
been discussed very carefully already doesnt seem to make sense imho ...

during the london distrosprint last year we had frequent reports about
the implementations that were done there and their current status. that
got a lot of attention, we should probably have something similar i.e. a
daily newsletter during conferences, so people can speak up on issues
and start parallel discussions on the various mailing lists if they feel
the need.
