I'll be there assuming the latest Freenode DoS settles down by then (I
can't send to any channels at the moment).

One more topic for the list -- I'd like to discuss the testing/stable
policy (https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL_Updates_Policy).  Specifically,
I'd like to see the requirement lowered from two weeks because I don't
actually think much testing happens in that time, so it just ends up being
a barrier for contributors.  I'd like to see the testing time requirement
lowered/dropped globally, or at least a way for "trusted" packagers to
bypass it without going through a per-update approval process.

Thanks Smooge for pulling these together and for sending out the reminder.
