Right, and we have been trying that as much as possible (imo).

I think we're in the stage that this can really get some traction. We've
been trying to do some sort of regular meeting so that wouldn't be all
that different.

The only drawback I have here is that the L10N project is pretty much
divided into dozens of small parts (the teams), and that the SCo would
mostly be handling infrastructural things. But then again this could
that the different teams start to communicate more in the project, which
is always good. (just my $0.02)

But anyway: if we want to form an SCo, let's just do it. People
interested: raise your hand!!
