That's a very good idea.

That applies to the working group meeting as well. There will be many
new faces at the table, representing new organizations, new use cases,
other working groups and new points of view.

I suggest the following points for the agenda:

 * A basic introduction to WebDriver, answering questions such as:
    - What is WebDriver and what can you do with it?
    - Why are we writing a spec anyway?
    - What is the relation between the spec and the open source project?
    - How can WebDriver be used by my other working group?

 * The state of the union. Where are we with the spec right now?

 * Ask everyone present:
    - What is your interest in the spec?
    - What problems do you need it to solve?
    - How would you and your organization be interested in
      participating in the work?

 * Discussion of the currently open issues in the spec
