I think it is a good idea. 3 meepups might be too much, but we can surely try 2.

Yes. Lets think about it.

Thanks for shooting the video this time.

Yes, we should maintain the blog.

We are planning to setup planet python india. So it will be another
place for people to find about meetups.

I don't think comments will be a good idea.  We can use a wiki page
for maintaing the agenda. We can discuss in the mailing list and
update the wiki page. People who are not in the mailing list can
directly update the wiki.
