On wiki: https://docs.einsteintoolkit.org/et-docs/How_to_Review_a_Patch
Guidelines or code contributions http://einsteintoolkit.org/contribute.html
* Components should be of sufficient quality to be used for peer-reviewed and published science. This includes a basic standard of software engineering, documentation of the software including algorithms and methods, tutorials and examples, and self-tests to demonstrate that the software works correctly.
* To focus development and support, optimize resources, and provide best practises, the Einstein Toolkit components should be of current interest to the community.
* All components must be distributed under an open source licence so that others can use these components without restrictions (except as mandated by scientific integrity), can modify and improve them as necessary, and can pass on these modifications to their collaborators as they see fit.

* ET call attendance
fluctuates significantly
suggestion to base skipping on number of agenda items
having the regular meeting once a week makes scheduling easier and
harder to forget
tentative agreement is to keep the weekly meeting
