Unfortunately I was only able to minute group 2's discussion as that was
the table I was on -- if you or anyone else from group 1's table have
notes they can provide, it would be a very good idea to post those, too.

I know I said "rough minutes/notes", but I'm reasonably happy that they
are a fair representation of the meeting and specifically the discussion
we had in group 2.

I suggest you calm down a little and take a more moderate line. You're not
going to win any friends by being offensive and belligerent. We are,
allegedly, all on the same side here.

I'm sorry that you don't think the minutes are up-to-scratch. Minuting the
chaotic conversations of 20 noisy people in a loud pub is not an easy
task. So let's take a Free Software approach and go for peer review and
constructive action. If you're not happy with the notes, please do post
amendments and corrections.
