I think there are three general areas for discussion:

1) Current status and immediate blocking issues
2) What we need in next few months to get XDP ready for "beta"
3) What is needed for long term success the project

Here are the list of topics so far (in no particular order yet). If
you have any additional topics we need to discuss please let me know.
Also, let if you would like to lead any of the discussion. We will
will have a projector so we can present slides for motivating
discussion.
