We had a number of organization suggestions last meeting, and task
forces got wide support. In particular, the two task forces that had
volunteer leaders (I think!) was Karl Dubost for a Privacy Task Force
and Joaquin Salvachua for the Portability Task Force. Each should have
a back-up, any volunteers?

There was also a "context" task force that seemed popular, but no
definite leader. Perhaps for the time being it should be merged with

Organizationally, what we want is telecons for the task forces that
have 10-20 people in them, thus giving people time enough to speak and
really get work done. However, what we don't want is telecons that are
unattended or confusing, with extra bureaucracy.

Looking at telecon times from the results of our first telecon poll
[1], it appears that the best time for the task forces to meet is
actually *right* after the main telecon. 14:00 UTC. Thus, remembering
we'll have guest talks biweekly, we could have the privacy task-force
meet right after the whole group meeting, and the portability
task-force meet right after the guest talk.

I think this is the way forward, as it requires no new telecon time
booking, and keeps the time and date of the telecons simple, but
allows people to attend only the telecons they want and keeps group
