Russ, Ian, and Don followed up to the above stating they're in favor.
Adding the DebConf11 feedback to that, do you think you have enough
support for the idea to make it a reality?

The next obvious step to do so is fixing a first date for a meeting.
And I think it'd be good to advertise it a little bit too, to reinforce
the (truthful) feeling that the tech-ctte is working on improving his
processes and becoming more efficient. (If you follow -devel and/or
-project, you might have notice that this has been a sort of recurring
topic as of recently.)

The DPL is mostly an outsider in all of the above, but I consider this a
very important topic for the project and I'm willing to invest some time
in it. So, if you want me to, I can try to find a time slot for a first
IRC meeting.

Let me know,
