The example of Bradley and his ideas (which almost got lost because
they were given on irc) told us that IRC is a short-lived medium and
we all want to be able to go back and refer to something somebody
wrote 100 years ago. So I support this idea to:

 - do all discussions in the mailing lists
 - reduce meeting schedule (those who are members of several teams
will love this)
 - hold meetings only to do final decisions about topics we discussed
in the ml before (in general)

I may remind you of the "values" page which should give much
input/inspiration about these points.

One essential part to promote something is "Keeping us in the news" -
which means "visibility" of the name.
More about that in an extra thread.

So, let's keep the mailing lists.
Not to repeat a problem at Mandriva where forum people and ml people
were almost 2 different worlds we will have to deal with a
communication bridge between the forum people and the ml people - this
may be a task for the forum moderator team (or others)
