    • Frequency: it is required a weekly meeting?
    • Timetable: is the current one a good timetable
    • Format: some people felt that meetings goes too much into detail.
  • About the frequency and timetable, Bryen commented that a weekly meeting is a overkill, doing it bi-weekly, will mean some people will only meet once a month
  • About the detail, Bryen feel that we enter too much into detail
  • He propose a more update-oriented meeting
  • He also propose limit the time applied for each agenda item
  • Alejandro Piñeiro point that just him and Joanmarie suggest agenda items
    • They have found meetings with just two items => 30 min for each, so it is normal enter on details

  • That became a three-person discussion, so we conclude that we should ask that on the mailing list
