Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the timeline went something like:

- Sunday evening, meeting adjourns
- Monday noon-ish, first real draft of the meeting report posted
- Tuesday morning, everyone who needs to review it gets on a plane
- Tuesday evening, DPL candidates have their deadline for responding to
  LWN interview questions

(all times UTC-0800)

I hope you'll be somewhat forgiving of the people involved for the
unfortunate case of timing at work here.
