We really can do everything on list.  The meetings are a reminder and
decision force -- having a time to "make decisions" helps busy people
remember to make them.

We could have a rule that anything brought up green/brand-new on the
list within the previous 48 hours of a meeting cannot be decided upon in
that meeting.  All other items that are undecided from the list from
before the 48 hour window are fair game for deciding in a meeting.

The idea is to have as much discussion and decision making
asynchroniously, but not let the mailing list time drift go on too long.

Deadline is five minutes before the meeting.
