Future meetings
============
Next FTF:
Will discuss again after Unicode conference.  Brainstormed possibilities
included:
-	combine with next Unicode conf in Sept - probably too far out
-	do something before the summer break
-	combine with a Core TF FTF in Montreal

Future teleconferences:
Agreed: Continue with weekly teleconferences; people should propose (on
the mailing list before the meeting) content topics they wish to discuss
during the teleconferences, and/or Richard will pick an area where we
have no content and we'll brainstorm content on the phone.  If there's
not much to discuss in a particular week, we can end early and get on
with some content development/editing.

Teleconference times are likely to change soon due to daylight savings
(end of March in Europe, beginning of April in US).
ACTION: RI to propose some new teleconf times to cope with daylight
savings at next week's meeting.

========
Not much progress made on this recently.
ACTION: RI to ping Suzanne again.
