   Firefox is back in the Game
   Keyboard shortcuts
   Firefox Sync
   Pretty much everything (logos, graphics, thunderbird and content dev)

   Chofmann asked what we did on the meetings
   William outlined the structure
   Nice quality on skype *but*
   No notes have been taken so far
   Rotating leadership did not work out
   Pierros suggested one leader till the next event

   We should prepare presentation for each meet-up (every community)

   Record the meetings... so that no-one misses them
