Yes, so the point of this (and a number of our other meetings) is to
create a bridge from end-user to developer of sorts.
Ports is likely the best entry point for most people, besides docs. And
it provides something of a motivation since you actual have a tangible
product with a function.
This is a great opportunity for those who are not developers and also
for those who do maintain/create other software now that they would like
to see ported.
