we can try such a meeting but I don't see the benefit compared to a
clear communication on the mailing list (can be of course improved).
Having it on the mailing list is good and everything is documented. The
main problem is the different mailing lists and the not correct using of
our tags (e.g. RELEASE, SOURCE, ...). I at least try to mark all release
relevant mails with RELEASE in the subject.

People can ask, propose or whatever on the mailing list and people in a
different timezone can read and reply later.

Either we do it in a more organized way and define exactly what we
expect or I am not interested. People can discuss on IRC or whatever
media, can collaborate on a proposal and can come back on the list to
share it with the rest.

I am in favor of having such discussion mainly on the list to have it

I am open to try it based on more detailed proposal what we want achieve
and how it should work
