Hi Gilles,

Thanks for leading this!  My reading of your agenda leads me to believe
that this is intended as a "problem solving" meeting, as described in
User:RobLa-WMF/Meetings#Taxonomy.  To quote that article:

*Problem-solving* - Discuss a problem that we don’t know how to solve.
> "Conversation for possibility" as described by 1999 article
> <http://www.fastcompany.com/36861/you-have-start-meeting>
>    - Successful outcome: an idea or a reasonably complete list of ideas
>    for how to solve the problem
>    - Successful outcome: consensus on the priority about the importance
>    of solving this problem (or consensus that it isn’t a problem after all)
>    - Non-goal: a decision for how to solve the problem
Does that seem like an accurate characterization for what you have planned
on Thursday?  I recommend structuring the conversation (and figure out
action items) to achieve your imagined goal.
