It appears as though it went on vacation.  It has to come back to work
eventually, though!

I think it would be a good idea to revisit the document that Cody put
together and see how it would need to be modified to suit a council-type
approach.  I can give this a try.  I'll let the group know if I have
questions as I put things together.

Once that is done, I think we should have a meeting to approve it.  We could
at least have that as an agenda item for our meeting (which we need to have
anyway).  I think that there is a general consensus around this for now, but
we should formalize it.

If we all approve of the change as a group, I think we could forward it on
to the council so that they know what we're doing, but I am not so sure it
would require their seal of approval.  As long as we are comfortable with
what we're doing, I think the community council would be ok with it.
Ultimately, I don't think it will make a huge difference in how we operate
as long as things get done.

I think we still need to address this.

I don't know what the situation is with Michael.  As for Joszef, I am of the
opinion that we could remove his name from the leaders list.  If he wanted
to come back and contribute more, he would be welcome to do so.

I agree!  I've put together a doodle poll to check everyone's availability
for a team meeting.  Please record what times will work for you using the
link below.  Hopefully the times will work for people, but I can set up new
times if I've picked times that don't work for your corner of the world.
Keep in mind that this will be the best Xubuntu team meeting ever.
