The wiki search indicated that this list wasn't on the wiki yet (except
scattered through the meetup transcript), so I've put it up at
so everyone can edit it until the all-hands meeting. (As with every
article on our wiki, edits will be recorded in the page history and can
be reverted, so don't be afraid to break anything.)
