There was never an agreement and that's why we are (sadly) still

It's a self-serve buffet with many different options (warm main
dishes, warm sides, cold sides, etc), that many people can serve
themselves at the same time. I don't know the exact size of the
cafeteria, but it's quite large and there's a lot of outside space
with tables and chairs that can be used to eat there if the weather is

I'm not sure what you mean here. 90 minutes should be enough time for
every member of the video team to eat and have spare free time on top
of that (assuming that they are taking the shifts before and after
lunch, which is not necessarily what will happen). Most people
usually take less than 30 minutes to eat, so that leaves 60 minutes
free time for everybody.
Why would there be slots that cannot be recorded?
Also, this is the team mailing list, if the video team is concerned
that 90 minutes for having lunch is not enough for them, they should
be the ones saying so.

The schedule has quite a bunch of empty space to allow meetings,
sprints, hacking time, etc. I don't think the result will be excessive
