Boring?! Not at all! At least, that's what I think.

For me the time is great (9 PM here).

I think the idea of having extended discussions after the meetings
would be great, although usually I have to go to work 15 min after the
meetings end so in the future I probably can't stick around very long.
So that's the only thing about the timing that sucks for me. If we
could push it to one hour earlier that'd be awesome, but I understand
that that's isn't easily done just for me. :) We could of course also
schedule those discussions for whenever the persons involved with that
particular task are available.

The agenda is fine I think, it just seems like it's too full because
sometimes there are topics that need more time. We should probably
push a topic back till after the meeting once we notice we've spent
more than 10-15 min on it?

But really, I think the meetings are great. They provide something
regular to build my schedule around and it's good to see what everyone
has been doing. :)
