I dunno. What's wrong with just asking people to pop into IRC and bug
people every couple of hours until someone who knows shows up? :)
This seems too over-structured to work. Getting people to show up for
the premeeting will be a pain. Personally, I'd prefer people felt
comfortable asking questions in IRC anytime, or emailing the mailing
list. With this, people may get the impression they should only ask
their questions in the once-a-month new-developers meeting.
Perhaps it'd be better to have a mailing list dedicated to asking
questions about the code?
