Originally this was supposed to be a record and upload to youtube kind of
We changed it to hangout thinking it could help being a realtime broadcast.
Considering it now, I feel we add no value to the event making it a hangout
if it is just a demo.
We need a hangout/irc meeting for discussion.
I will cancel the hangout for now and upload a demo somewhere with the
agenda mentioned above.(It would just explain current state)
We can discuss in community meeting today for a better date and time to
hold a meeting to discuss solutions for challenges that we mention in the
Thanks for the input Amye.
NOTE: The hangout has been cancelled. We will send invite for the
rescheduled session later.
