As dinda said, this is because Susana stepped up and offered it. It was
thought that getting experience working with upstream is a valuable
thing to do since anyone who is going to get into HCI things we're
planning will have to work with upstream at some time. I'm sorry if the
notes didn't make this clear enough.

Plus, we have to work with what we have. We can certainly put together a
list of sessions we *wish* someone would do. But in the end if no one
volunteers to give a session for triaging bugs for Ubuntu, we can't have
one. Once the new mentoring framework is setup we'll have an easier way
for people to volunteer to run sessions/courses.

Are you volunteering to run a session on bug triaging? That would be
great, I can help you get it rolling and I'd certainly attend :)

This was also mentioned in the meeting but I ommitted it in the notes (a

"second Sunday in May" is when most of the world celebrates, so that is
when we were shooting for. I've updated the notes on the wiki to refect

Again, we're glad to have the feedback!
