I suggest we not use real time meetings as the primary mechanism for moving

Judging by previous efforts, there is probably going to be less value in
real time discussion than there is in people taking and performing actions,
the product of which can be reviewed by the WG at their leisure.

The code of conduct is a perfect example of this. It just needs to be drafted,
reviewed for a week or two and then forwarded to the Foundation for
approval and adoption. Using Gdoc (or something else with review features.
For the love of dog, not gerrit please) rather than an etherpad would be
