Hi Guys,

I notice that only 4 of us have responded to the doodle, and the fourth
person is Brian King, now if we shy away for conversations with leadership,
we can't have a justification for the challenges we face. I want to thus,
encourage us to all respond to the doodle and make this meeting happen.


Also please update the etherpad with what you would like to discuss in the
meeting so that we have a concrete agenda.


Thanks,
