Actually, the more we go further, the more I'd like we try to get rid
of meetings (or use them sparringly just for quick votes on decisions
layed out on the list before with stakeholders) and get the team
driven by actions and deadlines, using the list as a common meeting

Discussing on i18n started it seems :-)

What do you suggest? Email, lists and IRC is mostly the most used at
this time. I fear the forum won't be an option to have everyone agree

As these make for very different topics, it would be good to have them
listed on the marketing page and, if to discuss those more
specifically, start a distinct thread.
