Well, ok, but when we have these meetings, it's a few RDO people talking
to one another, with rare exceptions.

The consensus on the RDO mailing list is that folks aren't interested in
attending another meeting in which the same things are rehashed.

So, I guess I need help 1) figuring out what the agenda for this meeting
actually is and 2) getting people to actually show up for it. If 1)
we're discussing the wrong things and 2) nobody's there, it doesn't seem
like a valuable way to spend anyone's time.
