I don't see why not, as long as we are able to understand what people
actually want so we can discuss it. Best to come at the meeting though

I believe most of them have already been taken (by me, Alexander
Kurtakov or someone else). But a list of the remainining would be nice
of course.

On a related note...can someone help me get alias for java sig so that
we are emailed when anyone commits into java packages? Not sure how
to get list of such packages though. Perhaps all spec files that have
BR on java, or something similar. We could start with packages that
people in SIG have commit access for I guess. Any thoughts on this?
