If I wasn't on the board, and if there was a detailed summary of the
topics published after the meeting, then I'd read that rather than
dialling in just to listen.

I do think it would be worthwhile for people to attend in-person for an
hour or two if they happen to be convenient to the venue, but that's
more from a "look these are real people, people who care about
OpenStack" perspective.
