And here is a better written up summary of the actions from yesterday's general meeting. I've also recorded these in a new "4th December agenda" section  at http://docs.webplatform.org/wiki/WPD:Meetings, in preparation for next week.

1. ACTION, Alex K:  Implement attributes/actions stuff (carried over)
2. ACTION, Doug S: Write up proposal for usage of data from caniuse, quirks mode, etc. on Wiki, and send link to list (carried over)

4. ACTION, Doug S: Write up guide on how to do translations by hand (carried over)
5. ACTION, Peter L: Follow up with evangelization of WPD docsprint at Google (carried over)
6. ACTION, Peter L: Write blog posts about next doc sprint on Dec 12th in Mountain View, continue organization for this
7. ACTION, Doug S: Set Peter up with permissions to write blog post on Webplatform.org
8. ACTION, all: Make our internal company teams aware of the doc sprint, and get interested parties to sign up and contribute
9. ACTION, Doug S: Approach Event Apart/Web directions folks about doing WPD doc sprints to tie into their events. (carried over, Doug has already started a conversation with John Allsopp, AEA folks still to be approached.)
10. ACTION, Doug S: Make more progress towards hosting Webplatform skin on GitHub (carried over, Doug has made progess on this, but needs to confer with Alex about best way to do this; Fr0zenice has looked at some of this stuff as well, in terms of what he wants to help with.)
11. ACTION, Doug S: Post a proposal to the list about best solution for duplicate title problem (carried over: progress made, plugin worked on, but Doug needs to wait for Ryan to get back off vacation to check that this will work)
12. ACTION, Peter L: Create Sprint in a Box package for docsprints (carried over: Still needs to be finished, but progress has been made, Andre from Adobe helped him out)
13. ACTION, Garbee: Continue working on solution for issue/bug tracking, as we really need a better way to do this. 
14. ACTION, Julee: Send around mail about Wednesday Content TF meeting, and send around Doodle poll to agree on better time for Content TF meetings
15. ACTION, Chris M: Work on milestones and roles for upcoming important tasks - make wiki page, then list 10 or so milestones that we really need to do; also encourage others to add their own. Things to definitely put on there - session handling issues, recruiting specific content contributors (to work on CSS, JS, etc.), dealing with spam
16. ACTION, Doug S: Send summary to mailing list of everything he can find to do with statistics

AGENDA ITEM FOR NEXT WEEK: spam

> [5:37pm]chrismills:and work with those as well
> [5:38pm]chrismills:shepazu: need to work on permissions too. e.g. content editor needs to be admin?
> [5:38pm]chrismills:shepazu: also agree with Eliot about needing to have milestones
> [5:39pm]chrismills:shepazu: next step should be to go on the wiki and list milestones for the next however long, see how it can work?
> [5:40pm]chrismills:Alex - ultimately we need an owner for setting different pieces, and working out who needs to do those.
> [5:41pm]chrismills:shepazu: small ammendment - make wiki page, then list 10 or so milestones that we really need to do, then encourage others to add their own
