great minds think alike, I just sent this to you offline:

we have no more pre-TPAC DAP calls scheduled.

I suggest we plan a call after TPAC, and make it known during TPAC breakouts that we will have this call.

How about 13 November? (We might need 5-10 minutes for administrative/ updates during the call)

easier to not have to find another time etc
