I just noticed that I'm not there and never requested membership, but
I'd like to. Who I should contact?

Since we have Android listed there I'd like to propose a topic to be
discussed in further meetings. The topic is very inflammable, don't
shoot any fire on it yet, but it's related to acceptance of the
Enlightenment project as gnome mobile project in exchange of better
integrating it with our stack.  Enlightenment was part of it once,
some people may remember it and some already said to me that they
associate those with "gtk/gnome 1.x dark days", but (fortunately)
people grow. They have some libs that we lack in our stack at the
moment (ie: Evas and Edje), some components collide  partially like
the window manager itself and we could either choose to left it open
to user choice, giving proper usage recommendations or just leave it
out/omit.    Some people may argue that cited libs would collide with
Clutter but I don't think this is true and they have different
    I already asked Carsten (raster) about that and he likes the idea.
I already proposed myself as a technology integrator, the biggest pain
at the moment is different main loops with different capabilities:
while Ecore have pre-/post idlers (idler_enterer and idle_exiter),
Glib have a thread aware version. So one cannot be written on top of
the other easily, we'd have to add requirements from one to the other,
adding pre-post idlers to Glib being the easiest and more interesting
    So what do you think, is it a topic for some meeting or just shut
up and forget about it?

I'm interested. Do we have to mail jeff in private, he reads this list anyways.
