I had a read through your wiki page and I think its a great start! I was
wondering if we should devote the first afternoon for more formal talks.
I was thinking along the lines that folks could offer proposals and
'vision' talks for where we want to get to for 2.0. This could include
powerpoints, screen mockups etc. I think its a great opportunity for us
to do some more strategic planning over and above the release to release
planning that we tend to do...

Tim
