I like your proposal, if it needs to change to accommodate other people 
that is fine by me. I will be in Germany for about a week in total. Most 
of it I will not be in Stuttgart however, I will ensure I am present 
when there is anything "Forrest" going on.

It is possible that we will not have many non-Forrest people taking this 
up. If this is the case I would like to use this time to do some forward 
planning and bug fixing. Will there be net access in this room?

I see this as being compatible with an "open exchange" with potential 
users and devs as we can ask what peoples use cases are and discuss 
whether Forrest should/would be considered for that use case. In cases 
where Forrest seems appropriate we can look at what changes need to be made.

I propose no changes at all to this part of the agenda. Views is key to 
the next release of Forrest and will, I think, finally see us moving to 
a subset of XHTML2 as the internal. This should be a purely design 
focused meeting.
