How best can we discuss items on the agenda?
There is a current item on the agenda about moving it over here, to the forum, but personally I feel that will make it harder to collate everything and discuss.
I think a good solution is to keep the agenda on the wiki for editing, and to additionally have a forum post each month where points can be addressed and discussed. The thread should begin with a link to the agenda, and perhaps agenda items could be numbered to allow for easier discussion and referencing. In some cases particular issues may require a spin-off thread, so they can be discussed in depth without muddying any discussion about other issues.
This helps to bridge the gap between members that can’t attend the meeting and those that can, and will hopefully help facilitate wider discussion about the issues at hand.
