Hi Bryan - please work with Chaals to schedule some time for this topic. 
Currently, the schedule is full but it may be possible to shorten the 
time allocated for a specific topic or to add it at the end of the day 
i.e. 17:00:


(FYI, I have a conflict with Web Events' f2f meeting and will not arrive 
@ WebApps' meeting until 10:00.)
