For me, at least, yes.

Setting short-term goals & checking past goals against progress.

We haven't had a meeting like that since the last council election, and
it's been missed. I agree with you that we need to change the way we do
sprint meetings - I don't think that the staff should be setting their
own goals, I think that the council/community should be setting them.
But we need the way-points.

For my part, I did not do any Maemo work in July, or most of August.
July, I was working flat out on other projects, August I took 3 weeks
vacation. Since returning from vacation, I've basically not done a lot
of Maemo work either - keeping up with forums, and starting the ball
rolling on elections, and pitching in (unbilled) for various MeeGo

I am contracted for 50 hours a month (~1/4 time) until December, at
which point it is looking like there will no longer be a budget (or,
perhaps, a need) for my position.

Brainstorm was about setting a 6 month agenda, not monthly way-points.
I'm still missing a first planning meeting following on from the
brainstorm, to be honest.
