We should get all topics added to the agenda. I do move through and set an
initial priority/ordering. But we can all of course discuss the priorities
before the meeting starts.

Like our last big meeting I will timebox the topics and clearly last the
intended outcome - vote/discussion/etc.

Michael Coates
Chairman, OWASP Board
