And if we want to - we could do an impromptu meeting around this
tomorrow - I know rrix had planned on kicking off the process on
Tuesday at the next marketing meeting (I'll be driving somewhere in
Wyoming, although I hope to have arrived and be in my hotel by this
point, but I am perpetually not on time to my hotel when driving with
childrenz). Or we could do it Monday, but at that point, I'd almost
say we could just wait till Tuesday during our regularly scheduled

I'm not sure that we've done a meeting around it at the beginning,
other than to say, let's send out email to a few lists and get some
people involved in helping round out the list on the wiki - usually,
IIRC, we've just had the meeting at the tail end to go through what
people have already populated.
