About timing, would Monday 20h UTC work for you?

If not, let's stick to Tuesday 20h and move the discussion for better
day of the week and better timing for the next meeting.

Sure, and I won't disappear. I can help pointing and chasing as usual.
Note that this "help" is probably also cause of the problem: because I'm
supposed to be more or less aware of what people is doing of I can
visit/call most of them, they perhaps bother less about reporting publicly.

Being clear that they have to be responsive to the Maemo community and
to the Council particularly is a bigger help, I think,

Complain about them and ask for clarification. You are the main

confidentiality issues some times but, really, I think that most of the
times is just about the BusyPeople = PoorReporting problem most of us
are familiar with.

And to tell you the truth, I do it mostly for myself. Reporting and
efficiency are cause and consequence. The days I miss reporting are also
the days I get less things done. Coincidence? Not at all.

Be selfish: do your reports.  :)
