As I was on holiday, how widely publicised was the meeting? I didn't
see a council blog post advertising it, nor do I see an official blog
post containing these minutes. How much lead time was there? Were the
wiki pages being updated as people came up with ideas?

I know I didn't get buy in for the suggestion of clearer
communication, but it's now been over two weeks since this
prioritisation meeting.

Can we see, please, from the people who committed to the tasks:

   1) When each of their tasks is expected to be completed.
   2) A series of milestones from now until that ETA.
   3) What areas other people can participate and assist in.
   4) What dependencies there are on the tasks (servers,
      people, processes etc)

A summary of the tasks from the meeting:

Overall (Tero or Niels?)
  * SSO for all maemo.org services (main site, wiki, bugzilla, talk)

Garage (Ferenc?)
  * Align with MeeGo
  * Provide migration path

Packages and downloads (Niels?)
  * OBS
  * Move Downloads on top of Packages
  * Release Maemo appinstaller as replacement for HAM which
    is more integrated with infrastructure.
  * Provide donation framework

Bugzilla (Andre or Karsten?)
  * Upgrade to Bugzilla 3.4
  * Triage all the PR 1.2 related bugs coming in

wiki (Dave?)
  * Categorise by OS
  * Tidy up (emphasise current versions; de-duplication)
  * Talk -> Wiki process
  * Collect Maemo 5 Use cases

Planet & News (bergie?)
  * View comments (expandable) in Planet
  * Include tweets/identica/qaiku in social news

> Basically no suggestions for news & planet outside of planned Nemein work

This planned Nemein work should also be on this roadmap for visibility purposes.

Talk (Reggie)
  * Improve content tools (RSS feeds, changing subjects)
  * Email <-> forum bridge

Thanks in advance,
