For Checkbox we are waiting for an experienced/skilled QA member to 
write the tests, will we have this person for the call?
Concerning Litmus, not sure it's necessary to sync it finally because I 
don't see it's usage enhanced. It's not really adapted to our needs and 
we should first think at the people who will use it instead of losing 
time writing tests that nobody will run.
May be it would be interesting that our QA member working on Checkbox 
with Canonical work also on Case conductor to see how it feet our needs 
and/or how we can adapt it with the help of the language communities.

Cor will be available for the community things, so not sure I'll have to 
be there.
