I'm not sure how much time we'll have from the 45 minutes scheduled, and
how well interacting via IRC with the room will be, but I have some
topics we could discuss:

- grass package maintenance & collaboration with upstream
  - moving GRASS 7 out of experimental and disabling qgis-plugin-grass
  - how to improve the collaboration with upstream
  - how to get everyone working with the same source packaging

- upcoming transitions (netcdf, gdal, grass, libkml)
  - libkml has been forked upstream, and that triggered Google
    engineers to pick it up again.

- should we have an in person sprint?
  - tag along with an OSGeo or Debian event or separate?
  - maybe one with the GRASS developers to work on packaging issues?

Kind Regards,
