Sorry for the delay, I was in the desert.

You proposed UTC 17.  That's 3am for me.  I can't do that.  I can do
UTC 20 to UTC 12.

Suggested topics;

* update the Design Team documentation, e.g.

* list of volunteers with skills to make Sugar icons; I've often
  needed an icon for a new feature, but none of the recent developers
  have made any Sugar icons recently, so I had to re-use older Sugar

On your proposed topics;

* Sugar icons; at the moment the design (see above link) is to use
  colour to convey author, and Walter and I would like to change to
  use a badge (small SVG overlaid on large SVG) instead, and once that
  works add a colour theme to the activity icons.  A small code change
  first, then a major effort to update icons, with a transition plan
  so that activities will continue to bundle an older icon for use
  with existing systems.  This doesn't really need a meeting, unless
  there's something about the change that people have questions about
  that they don't want to put in mail.  Can we also discuss in mail?

* Sugar Labs branding - Logo; the current logo
  https://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/Marketing_Team/Logo has been working
  well, so change will need some thought and reasons, looking forward
  to what you come up with; see also
  https://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/Trademark the registered mark,
  specimen document.

* Sugar Labs branding - Website redesign; is completed only recently;
  there are 76 issues with the new web site that haven't been fixed,
  so we should review and fix those issues first before creating a new
  site with hundreds of issues?

https://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/Design_Team/Meetings may be interesting
for history of the design team.  See how the "meeting is targeted to
Sugar core and activity developers, but remains open to anyone
interested. Its primary purpose is to open the design approach, making
it more transparent and allowing the community to provide feedback on
both current and upcoming features."  As a core and activity
developer, I'm looking forward to hearing what is proposed, and can
share some of the activity and core design changes I've had in mind.
