Hi Mike:

Thanks for the excellent minutes
One correction:
  if/when we move from Get Satisfaction (GS) to SUMO forums we won't be 
migrating the GS data to SUMO. I have the GS data in a database and we 
could migrate but it would be more trouble than it's worth and it would 
require developer resources we don't have

Finally, to accommodate Vincent in France and Matt in Australia who 
couldn't show up to Warsaw we are having a followup meeting using Vidyo 
video conferencing (dial in info is at the end of this email) on 
Saturday 22 September at 5a.m. Pacific (this is the only time that would 
work with all the timezones).

Agenda is here:


And here's how to dial in / video in:
