It does, doesn't it? I wouldn't want this as a main ksummit topic.

The problem with ARM minisummits these days is it is very easy to
devolve into a nothing-but-dt meeting with a bunch of people sitting
around looking either annoyed or bored. We weren't able to pull enough
topics together when we tried to do an ARM minisummit at the ELC.

Instead of a traditional ARM minisummit, perhaps we should do an ARM
platforms minisprint instead. Light on any kind of presentations, but
have the right people in the room to try and knock out some of the
legacy backlog (which is kind of what Jason described)
