We finally switched to the network-team meeting type where only the
discussion is logged by meetbot and all the status updates are on the
pad. For transparency and easier cross-team collaboration we'll send out
weekly meeting notes including both the meetbot log and our status
updates to the tor-project as well.

The meeting transcript is available at:

The notes are below:
