This is the tough one write now - in the game of meeting expectations, 
this part is the burden on the community & the person of setting 

For example: I proposed tasks for this sprint the day before the 
meeting, but I have no idea if people are happy with what I proposed, if 
they think I haven't taken on enough have taken on too much, haven't 
broken tasks down enough, etc...

I was both happy & unhappy to see the "Maemo docmaster" thread - happy 
because it was a good opportunity to figure out expectations and define 
short & medium term priorities, unhappy because there was an implicit 
suggestion that I wasn't meeting expectations before.

Anyway - I'm happy to see us talking about this, since it is important 
that we be working on thinks that are useful, that we be seen to be 
doing useful work, and that we're providing value for our time.
