Meeting chair guide
- Thanks for volunteering! it will all go well. As you probably already know, we use this meeting as a venue for cross-project communication and discussion. Horizontal projects and vertical project teams get a soap box, anyone can raise a discussoin topics, and we openly discuss cross-project specs there too.
- The day before the meeting, please review the agenda at the top of this page. If there aren't that many topics proposed, you should consider adding one or two cross-project specs for discussion.
