That is not compatible with the current text of the reminder: "the
weekly Axis2 developer chat <i>will be occurring</i>".<br>

That, or modifying the text of the reminder, would be equivalent. Keep
in mind that future new contributors to the project would probably see
only the autoreminder or the project Web page, but not some email
thread such as this where we decided what the autoreminder really means.<br>
If the goal is to <i>affect</i> team behavior with regard to the
weekly chats, then I claim that a committment from the project lead
will encourage more participation than likelihood of running into
people. Are people not attending because the lead is not there, or is
the lead not there because people are not attending?<br>
If the goal is to <i>follow</i> team behavior, then a promise that the
chat will be occuring, is not accurate.<br>
As with any vote, it depends on how you word the question (e.g. is the
premise that project lead is making a committment, or not?).<br>
