This was kind of an ad-hoc meeting. I agree that others should be allowed
to participate. So, if it's all right, let's at least have regular weekend
meetings, 9am Sat & Sun (PT).

Alan, although I understand wanting to know the details of the dialogue,
copying & pasting makes the message kind of incoherent. I'm fairly
scattered in meetings, so random stuff can be interjected. I would rather
have a digest/summary of the meeting than the actual text. When you sent
your dialogue with Anand, I couldn't really make heads or tails of
it. It's like listening to the tape of a meeting, but with "smileys"
interjected. In addition, someone reading the text might misinterpret
something, or something that looked resolved earlier in the text is changed
later on.

I would suggest a digest/summary. Some kind of notes for the whole
meeting. If there are disputes, we can always go back to the original text.
