I am a bit confused by this stance to be honest. You yourself said
when you were Icehouse PTL that you wanted cores to come to the
summit. What changed?

The etherpad for the meetup has extensive notes. Any summary I write
will basically be those notes in prose. What are you looking for in a
summary that isn't in the etherpad? There also wasn't a summary of the
Icehouse midcycle produced that I can find. Whilst I am happy to do
one for Juno, its a requirement that I hadn't planned for, and is
therefore taking me some time to retrofit.

I think we should chalk the request for summaries up experience and
talk through how to better provide such things at future meetups.
