We could consider the idea of a fortnightly, monthly, or bimonthly
formal meeting online somewhere.

As long as sufficient advance warning of said meeting is advertised to
enough channels, and with sufficient calls for agenda items, and
sufficient advance notice of agenda items, in conjunction with
archived copies of formal meeting logs and log summaries ("outcomes"),
it could be useful.

As I imagine that as long as we had them regularly scheduled and at a
well defined time, people who had vested interest in participation
could factor it into their scheduling if they're not able to keep on
top of all the things we do in an informal manner.

This would also double as a kind of transparency provider for people
outside the echo-chamber, as the logs and summaries would be something
3rd parties/vendors/LWN/etc could cite, whereas the overall nature of
toolchain at present is mostly "secret" if you're not part of the
constant IRC conversation. ( Of which a lot of is not relevant to
outsiders, and is merely dealing with specific and localised problems,
not wider ones )

I think such a strategy (or similar) would be a good adjunct to the
yearly summits, and at considerably lower cost and time investment.
