Thank you Florian for putting this up!

Since we're targeting early next year, we might also think of 
co-locating this with FOSDEM in Brussels (if that's an option?), as it 
might enable folks to combine travels?


Topics for the meetup I would imagine are:

- review guidelines for reviewing code
- what are groups doing? presentations of involved projects?
- next big(ger) changes requested/planned for development
- ramping up interested persons
- discussion on changing the release model? feature-based vs. time-based 
- ...
