Here is a short summary of the network team meeting from Monday the 13th
of January 2020.

1) Started out with roadmap. People were asked to use
   #network-team-roadmap-2020Q1 as keyword on Trac for new items for the Q1 2020
   roadmap items.

2) We have an 0.4.3 status page now at
   that we will use for seeing how we are doing with the 0.4.3 release.

3) We decided to move next meeting to 22/1 2020 at 23 UTC.

4) There was a short discussion on a practracker issue that was resolved.

5) Nobody had anything else to discuss.
