    • mai - seconds blake's suggestion, but agrees with jorrit that reviewing bugs is important
      • jnny - might suggest briefly touching on node mounts, comms/outreach, github issues/feature updates, events/workshops, finance/fundraising briefly at each meeting then breaking out mebbe. can stick this in agenda discussion item if you make one.
