It's definitely true that no one has had the free cycles available to
drive this (and I know I can't in the way I'd like, due to FSOSS/TOSW
and other activity).

My take on is that we have some good space, we have stuff that we need
to talk about, we have a small number of people committed to being there
(10 at this point), and we have dinner booked (we're going to join the
FSOSS speakers). We should get together in some form or another, whether
it ends up looking more like a steering committee, a small barcamp, or a
big shindig.

So I'd say we're 'on', let's sort the details -- either on the list or
during the call on Monday -- and do it, even if in a scaled-back form.
