Since the meetings have been far apart, and not many people have been 
around, let's do the voting on the meeting structure changes on the 
mailing list. Here's the proposal again for clarity:

1) Stop running the "Team updates" section

Pasting the updates in a meeting means more work (through having to 
memorize/note down items) for contributors. It also means that those who 
can't attend the meeting (which means many people per meeting), can't 
paste the updates unless somebody does this for them.

Since we now have a timeline tab [2] in the tracker, most of these 
updates can be seen live.

The only real change in action contributors would need to take would 
apply to work items. Practically this means that everything that could 
be worth mentioning for people outside the team - or added in the 
release notes - should be in the blueprints. Doing the updates like this 
also improves their findability. As I see it, this isn't much different 
from what we currently do, or at least what I try to do.

Finally, the updates that aren't worth/important enough to add to the 
blueprints could still be shared in the meeting, thus...

2) Rename the "Announcements" section to "Updates and Announcements"

This is just semantics, but it should be done to avoid confusion and be 
more accurate.

Team members, cast your vote by sending +1, -1 or +/-0 on this list. If 
you wish to vote privately, you cand send a mail to Simon or me (you'll 
find the emails - or can ask on IRC).

We'll have a week for the votes. The results are gathered and published 
after next Friday (or after 21UTC next Friday) when me and Simon crash 
on IRC at the same time.
