I dunno, maybe we should do a run-up mostly-online sprint sometime in
the next few months (early December, before the holidays really hit,
maybe?).  Again, it's a big effort to get core people face-to-face and
so that needs more lead time, but if you guys who can just get on a
train for a few hours want to get together sooner or more often, you
should totally go for it :-).

Well, like everything in FOSS, what each person does is up to them
:-).  Definitely a lot of the point is to make contacts and get
energized, but if you can then use that energy from being in a group
to pound out code (or docs, or whatever), get instant response when
you run into a question, well...

I doubt it is important that everyone be working on monotone core, or
on guitone, or on mtteam, or whatever... I bet everyone can still find
things to talk about...
