Thanks Denys, for an excellent summary.
I had written a similar one but not posted yet. Here is mine as well. 
Probably says the same. ;-)

Short summary of UI team meeting august 10th 2011

Denys Mishunov, Sisi Nutt, Mark Corum, Eric Steele and Geir Bækholt 
attended the meeting.

Issues discussed:

Individual plips
Discussion around comments to the "New collections" plip. Denys had made 
a draft which, apart from a few minor adjustments, was fully embraced by 
the team. Denys will update the recommendation and comment in the 
corresponding Plip.

The team agreed that it is a good idea to get the team properly started 
by working on Plips for the next Plone versions. Further tasks of the UI 
team, like creating guidelines or processes, can be formalised later, 
after the team has found its patterns and pace.

Process for adding recommendations/evaluations to Plips
The team agreed internally and with the release manager (Eric)  that the 
best process for offering recommendations on Plips, at least in the 
starting phase, should be as follows:

* Discussions happen in email/list.
* The team approves a final recommendation in meeting
* The recommendation is posted accorded to the framework team review 
process, as a textfile to the next version Plip evaluation buildout, 
with comments to the corresponding Plip.
* The recommendation is submitted, after meeting approval, as a UI team 
recommendation, not as an individual review. That way the FWT can relate 
to UI issues without having to get engaged in individual discussions.

The UI team will start doing regular phone meetings every 2nd week. (but 
every week these few first ones, to bootstrap)

Sisi sets us up with an Etherpad variant to write summaries and 
recommendations during meetings.

Next meeting is aug 17th, then the next one aug 24th.
