Thanks for bringing that up Howard. I was supposed to take the lead on 
that and didn't.  :(

I second your proposal.

Tuesday works for me.

One topic I'd like to discuss then is the 5.0 feature freeze date.

I had started a thread on this a little while ago where I proposed and 
we agreed to a feature freeze at the end of May (or early June), but I 
haven't been able to make as much progress as I wanted on my 5.0 feature 
development work and would like to propose pushing the feature freeze 
date to the end of June. That would still leave us enough time to 
release before the end of August, in time for the September conference.

Actually, since the date is approaching fast I'd like to hear feedback 
on this even before the IRC meeting if possible. I'm ready for flames 
too since I am well aware that I am the one who usually tries to enforce 
rules/decisions about schedule and deadlines, etc... that puts me in an 
odd position to request an extension.
