- Organization
 - local team LGM event
 - remote, more continiously for supporting local team in events
- Proposals for LGM2014, decision making process

Main part
How can we faciliate a 'new' local team. Femke and Louis have hard earned
information, how do we transfer it to them.
Especially, which things does the "remote" team do, and which must the
local team do
Femke: Create wiki existed, was useful for this purpose
- allowing new people to understanding the spirit, feel and purpose of LGM.
Structure, format
some things are different from time to time, but others stay the same
in a new place, it would be neccesary to adapt
In 2010, unsure if she had the authority to make certain decision

Organize hacking sessions more Making formally part of event,
Next to no proposals for project meetings this
A bit more focused activity
Increases transparency

Proposal from Ale, table for teams in the hacking area. Can have logbook
where people sign in.
Have to be careful in not reducing the focus on cross-team meeting
Team internal meeting does not happen that often
