What's the difference between an administrator and contributor in, say,
the "releases schedule" group?

Note that the marketing tasks we have are already on the big list of
tasks for each release (see:

We need someone to coordinate these things. Note that we're already
behind (mea culpa) on talking points, marketing wiki pages, etc.

I'll try to draft the first cut of talking points this week.

No objection, but an observation: Meetings are good for check-ins and
such, but I find the mailing list and Trac to be way more effective for
actual getting stuff done. I'm good with keeping the meetings but I
wouldn't rely on those as the primary mechanism for organization.
