I certainly agree that wine-devel should be the main communication
medium for obvious reasons. However, the latency on the list is
rather large lately (both from an email delivery perspective, as
well as a psihological one). Having more of a conversation where
the latency is a few seconds allows for a different style of
discussion, where one can bring up small ideas that are maybe
not worth a thread on wine-devel.

The result of such a meeting should be nicely summarized and
posted on wine-devel and WineHQ.

I think we should give it a try.
