I'm in favor of a generic meeting. I'm not sure it's worth taking the whole 1 
hour slot though. I think that the BFV one might only take half of slot, where 
the second half maybe taken by another integration subteam.

Speaking of which, I propose the networking subteam to start (continue?) having 
their own meeting as well. There is a lot of stuff going on that is hard to 
catch up with.
