Hi Aaron,

Thanks for these notes! From vacation, I'll answer your M-Lab questions
quickly (also adding Stephen).

The collector policy implementation is a blocker for deployment on M-Lab.
To complete deployment, it will be necessary for M-Lab to configure this
collector policy, to ensure that the broader M-Lab privacy/openness
policies are adhered to. Thus, I believe it should be a part of this
feature-complete milestone, since it is fundamental to launch.

I can review the M-Lab policies, if that's helpful. However, I don't think
the collector policy should be designed for M-Lab, but should be designed
to allow M-Lab and any other collector to implement their own policies, per
their legal/organizational requirements.

Let me know if you have any questions here. Happy to discuss further.

In the meantime, on the topic of changing the meeting from Hangouts to
"other" -- I have a phone bridge with international dail-in numbers. If
it's helpful we can use it.
