agenda for Debian leadership team (a.k.a. "Project Scud") meeting on 2005-04-24

The leadership team described in Andreas Schuldei's[1] and my[2] platforms
for this year is having its first full formal meeting today at 2200 UTC.
The agenda is attached.

This is not a public meeting, mainly because some sensitive issues may be
discussed (details of Debian finances, interpersonal conflicts that the DPL
has been asked to resolve, and so forth).

I realize that a closed meeting is not ideal; I welcome suggestions on how
to balance the accountability of the DPL and the leadership team with the
necessity of dealing with the occasional sensitive issue in a more discrete
manner than a public IRC channel.

If it's any consolation, I'm not privy to anything that was said about me
over beers at LCA 2005, either.  :)

The meeting will be minuted, and the minutes will be posted to this list as
soon as they have been prepared and accepted by the team members in

Ordinarily, the intent is to send out the agenda a fair bit further in
advance than this, so that people can comment and it can be modified to
reflect areas of concern that we may have overlooked.

As Bdale is en route back to the U.S. from Australia, we do not expect his
attendance at this meeting.
