Often. Not much. :( Partially my own fault too since I haven't been good
about adding items to the agenda myself ahead of time.

I'd propose we axe the regular agenda entirely and let people promote
things in open discussion if they need to. In fact the regular agenda
often seems like a bunch of motions we go through... to the extent that
while the TripleO meeting was going on we've actually discussed what was
in my opinion the most important things in the normal #tripleo IRC
channel. Is getting through our review stats really that important!?

Perhaps a streamlined agenda like this would work better:

 * Bugs
 * Projects needing releases
 * Open Discussion (including important SPECs, CI, or anything needing
attention). ** Leader might have to drive this **
