... or we can discuss your area before here in the mailing list + wiki,
not as an exception on you this time but as a normal procedure for
people not able to make it in a certain sprint meeting.

This way we can establish fixed dates and times and people can get
organized in time.

There will be a log of the chat, which is always easier to follow than
brief minutes from a face 2 face meeting.

What do you think?
