Points from today's meetup:

* Next Wednesday, June 10th, is the target date for the release of
WordPress 2.8.  Tickets against the 2.8 milestone that are not
blockers will be postponed to another release.
* WP 2.9 will require MySQL 4.1.2.
* Checks will added to the auto upgrader that will prevent upgrade to
2.9 if running MySQL < 4.1.2 and suggest telling the host to upgrade.
* Checks will be added to the upgrader to suggest that those running
PHP 4 switch to PHP 5. A link to a Codex page describing how to switch
for various hosts should be provided.  This is in preparation for the
blessed day when we will be able to require PHP 5.
* The new meetup time will be every Wednesday at 9pm UTC.
