I really wish I'd know about this.  This is an important thing to
discuss.  I don't know, however, if anything will get done tonight.

It is extremely important that issues like this get put on our meeting
agenda.  Three and a half hours before meeting time isn't sufficient
notice.  While I am not placing any blame on you, I'm simply pointing
out that as a general rule if it's not on our agenda then we don't know
about it.

That's another thing.  I don't know anyone who watches the forums.
Communication is primarily on IRC, or the mailing list.  While I should
get into te habit of checking the forums more often, I simply don't.
I'm not really sure what the solution here is, but it is something the
team will have to address as we become more organized.

In any case, none of that is important in regards to your actual item.
As I see it, I think you should definitely bring te issue to the mailing
list for discussion.  We can always bring it to a meeting after that if
need-be.  We also have the problem of non-existent participation in
Northern California.  I'd gladly make the trip if I could find the time
(on a weekend or some such) but I don't have a budget for any more
travel after LRL.  I do want to hear more about the project, however!

Regards,
Nathan
