As discussed in #debian-rust earlier today, the meeting will happen in
two days, on Wednesday the 22nd July at 19:00 UTC. See below for some
possible topics. Two additional points we might want to discuss:

- regular meetings (once a month? bi-monthly?)
- discussion list separate from pkg-rust-maintainers which gets all the
  automatic mails

see you there! :)

> The main topic to discuss is how to break out of the situation we
> currently have with many packages stuck in NEW, and several people being
> demotivated - members of both the debian-rust as well as the ftpmasters
> team. A rather good summary of the situation can be found in the
> archives of this mailinglist [1].
> There is a proposal [2] for implementing functionality in debcargo that
> would allow collapsing many features into a single binary package, which
> might help in this situation, but there is no consent on whether it's
> the proper way forward.
> Best regards,
> Wolfgang.
