Are you thinking of making it the full meeting, or having an item where
a distro gets to talk about their delta, why its there, and discuss
ways of merging it back?

Pabs' script may end up providing us information like this (the mining
part at least).

Sounds good, whichever way of setting it out you thought ;)

Rough agenda (so far):
- total meeting time 60 min
 - introductions 10-15 min
 - your item above, 30 min(?)
 - other stuff 15 min
 - wrap up 1 min

Your item/other stuff will be clarified when i understand exactly what
you're proposing. The items look good, just not sure how you're
suggesting it happens.
