I get the desire to do planning via an in-person meeting, but it's not
going to fly.  Here's the reason:  it's exclusionary.

We are an Apache project, and that means that the list is the place for
planning and decisions.

Now, that doesn't mean that we can't all have talk proposals to discuss
a feature we'd like to see at an event.  On the contrary, that's a great
talk topic.

I'll circle back to Murali's initial email to discuss some of the finer 
points of his post shortly.
