I don't think there is anything against continuing this way if you want to.

As I already wrote, I will change to 2 meetings the same day, same
topics, 12 hours apart, so it may be easier to participate.

Please tell, if Thursday, December 9, 09:00 GMT +1 (pls have mery with
me!) and 20:00 GMT +1 would be suitable.

I already mentioned Transifex:

" - collaboration tools for i18n
 - - Transifex is already set on the server. It may be good if
somebody who knows it could give a bit of insight during the meeting"

It is planned as collaboration tool for all language groups
internally. It is meant as a recommendation, not a requirement. I was
hoping that somebody could say more about it in the meeting.

Yes, it will be reused. How much of it depends on which packages will
be imported from Mandriva.

I guess the other points (setup, etc.) will be already time consuming
enough. If not, we'll discuss it, else we put it on the list for
second meeting, ok?
