      • Regular
      • 15 minutes (max) status update
      • primary TOPIC (usually a presentation)
        • If there's an emergency topic, then push presentation back a week.
      • AOCB (schedule follow-ons)
    • Pan-project updates
      • Roughly monthly, led by Jason
      • Invite a wider audience
      • Each minigroup reports: docs, model/formats, server, web, insight, analysis, etc.
      • Prepare a few bullet points before hand: "Working on", "Major priorities", "Bottlenecks/Blockers"
      • 2-3 minutes each, plus questions
      • No technical discussions (in follow-ups)
    • New meeting type: "Coffee chats"
      • No fixed slot; scheduled when needed
      • Opportunity to look at boards, discuss priorities, dig into details, etc.
      • Andrew: is it annoying for remote people when discussions / decisions occur at Dundee over coffee?
        • Kenny: has brought Josh up to the Garland in a laptop computer
        • Chris: not clear that the coffee chats make the situation any worse
    • Jason: necessary to meet weekly?
      • Douglas: weekly meeting useful for finding out what is going on
        • e-mails, gdoc, trello, etc. overwhelmingly much, so meeting is useful summary
      • Helen: a month is a long time on this project
      • Ola: may be more productive, useful if strict about timing / preparation
        • Helen: perhaps limit to one hour every week
        • Ola: and maybe limit presentations to 20 to 25 minutes
        • Jason: so long as people who need to ask something may do so
          • Helen: but be strict about discussions arising
        • Chris: helps to have any discussion after presentation
        • Jason: so, presentation, then round-table, and limit to one hour
        • Jason: important things that run out of time can go to devteam, nitpick, etc. afterward
        • Jean-Marie: avoid adding too many agenda items, move technical discussion to after meeting
        • Jean-Marie: okay to have review then presentation, allowing discussion on presentation
    • Jason: useful to have larger discussion around some topic, perhaps monthly?
      • need only be attended by those interested in topic
