Agenda Item suggestions:
    * Discussion of call goals
    * Cobalt defined and discussion of the motivations behind it
--Julian Lombardi
    * Discussion of community-based open source development process --
Julian Lombardi and Mark McCahill
    * Community tools selection - What hosts and software for
community collaboration? (Adobe Connect? IRC? Logging? Here is an IRC
example --Matthew Fulmer)
    * Perhaps a different meeting method? I've been arranging
bi-weekly meetings for a squeak release team on irc. This way the
meeting is automatically logged by the normal irc logging bots, so
that people who didn't attend can see what happened.
    * Call scheduling in the future - is weekly better? - John & Darius
    * What is the most important thing to get in an alpha-level release?
          o If Cobalt is to be a social platform are we primarily focused on,
                + working chat,
                + discussion facilities,
                + whiteboarding, and
                + activity sharing
          o and only focused on secondarily
                + physics,
                + game engines,
                + art, and
                + fancy graphics --Matthew Fulmer
    * Let us review the current menu, compare it to our community
goals, and assign some tasks - Darius
    * Review the tutorials - if need to review them - Darius
    * Can we have a benevolent dictator for a while who can respond to
strategic questions? - Darius
    * How can we let others know we need help? - Darius
    * Summarize most important take-away points - Darius
