+1 to all that, and that's generally been the stance in the past. (I
believe Chris Lattner was called out a bit when he posted a Swift posting
without much tie in to LLVM, for example - and that was later
clarified/corrected to include the LLVM context in that posting)

That being said, is there any benefit to the /meeting/ list being publicly
postable? Perhaps, like llvm-bugs, it should be announce-only & leave the
discussion to the -dev lists? (most of the announcements are cross-posted
to the dev lists anyway, so I assume the meeting list is just for those
interested in the meeting, but not all the chatter?)
