Chris et la, I am open to forgoing regular meetings. I don't want to 
close off a communication channel if people find it helpful. The current 
meeting info is generally repeated to the list at some point, since many 
cannot attend. However, on occasion, realtime help and understanding is 
gained. Perhaps the #ubuntu-testing channel being manned and the mailing 
list is enough. As I said, I'm open to all suggestion on this :-)
