As great as meetbot is, it takes effort to use it to produce really good meeting minutes, and the default output has a lot of output that makes everyone’s eyes glaze over.

Right, I like the idea of making the meeting minutes nice and utilize 
meetbot functions more than we do now. That should cover the meeting 
part of the discussion quiet effectively.

However, some interesting talks are sometimes not discussed during 
meeting (not all groups actually hold meetings regularly), because they 
are covered on group's mailing list already enough. And I'm not sure if 
summarizing those in the beginning of the meeting would work.
