Hi Emmanuel Lecharny and all...

   You are right, this is why this kind of meetings are not related to
decisions making in general, they are just like an online
get-together/meetup, they are optional not mandatory to attend, and no
decisions are taken in them, just brain storming, comments, ideas
which again are recorded in a briefing e-mail so what has been
discussed in it is shared with others who could not attend it.

One good sign of such calls is that we could encourage two new members
to join the project and exchange ideas, they are:

1- Robert Van Poelgeest.
2- Vangjel Stavro.

And imagine such impact on these new members, that they could attend
and share their ideas and experiences live with the rest of the team,
which helped in breaking the ice by introducing ourselves to each
other and also give a brief history about the project and what we are
looking forward to have, etc. It was really a very encouraging
experience for all of us and it proved that it is a faster way to
include new members and get them blended in fast enough to see what
they can contribute to the project.

I really understand all of your concerns and I really appreciate it
that you always remind us with what we should take care of, and I am
sure that mentors of Apache Isis project are Apache's guarding eyes to
make sure that we are not drifting away from Apache rules/processes
