By my informal count, it looks like we will have at most 5 of our 10 core reviewers in attendance. I don't think we should cancel based on that, but it does mean that we need to set our expectations accordingly.

While that's a break from precedent, planning should be happening via the spec review process *anyway*. Also, we already have a larger back log of specs and work than we had this time last cycle, but with the same size review team. Rather than adding to our backlog, I would like us to use this gathering to burn through some specs and land some code.

Would we be able to get the "other half" of the core team together and get more work done? Is this a good idea?

I could (and likely would) attend the Bay area one.
