Two questions about theme-based initiatives:

I would like to have a discussion about the work to stop syncing
requirements and to see if we can make progress on the implementation
while we have the right people together. That seems like a topic
for Monday or Tuesday. Would I reserve one of the "last-minute WG"
rooms or extra rooms (it doesn't feel very last-minute if I know
about it now)?

I don't see a time on here for the Docs team to work together on
the major initiative they have going to change how publishing works.
I didn't have the impression that we could anticipate that work
being completed this cycle. Is the "helproom" going to be enough,
or do we need a separate session for that, too?
