I don't think anyone could rely on an additional list to convey
information to prospective meeting attendees. IMHO if we use sanity in
our reminders and only post them when they are actually useful (change
from routine, exceptional meetings, etc.), we can keep posting them to
openstack-dev / stackforge-dev. They are not nearly as disruptive as
non-development questions that get answered before I even get a chance
to shoot them down :)
