Posted Agenda:
 - LSB 5.0: progress!  Any conclusions on GTK+ 3 list?

 - "New LSB": new potential topic.

New business:

Meeting opens at 11:00 with:

Jeff L mentions that his header parser is emitting results.  
Russ asks that Jeff post a link to the test dataset, and the 
analytic scripts into 'git' so we can 'fan out' working this 

In other news, Jeff L notes that some certification request 
have come in

Kay asks about LinuxCon; Jeff L has a conflict with a child 
starting college, but we need to move forward.  Russ notes: we 
have blocked on the closest task in front of us.  Kay says: we 
still need to offer a communication plan and LinuxCon is the 
next major event.  Jeff J runs through time based vs feature 
based releasing, and asks: is GTK so critical that it MUST be 
included, or can be placed to one side as we simply cannot get 
it to stabilize.

Jeff L aware he needs to push out a response on RPM matters 
per the call two weeks ago.

Jeff L points out a kernel device tree problem -- they seem to 
'live' all over the filesystem.  See:
Discussion of workflow by Kay -- she updated a set of SVG 
sources, that crank through and emit a PDF.  JBJ mentions his 
good experiences with Launchpad (which is BZR friendly)

Russ proposes voice Friday in tandem with IRC for the bug 
triage meeting
