MAIN FOCUS OF MEETING

Action items from last meetings
- Thunderbird Council reorganization: we'll discuss this in the Council directly and do some reorganization. This is not a forever governance plan, but we need to be practical given the many demands of the moment.
- I (rkent) sent a proposal to the Council two weeks ago, now I need to badger a few people to give responses and decisions. Gerv has a process of voting to approve the slate using tb-planning that he will be running.
- we should really clean up the module owners and peers at https://wiki.mozilla.org/Modules/MailNews_Core and https://wiki.mozilla.org/Modules/Thunderbird. Candidates for removal: Bienvenu, standard8, sid0, JosiahOne.
