How about something along the lines of:
Furthering the Use of FreeBSD. Share ideas and plan to increase
the number of
companies and individuals using FreeBSD. Discussion of the
or policy aspects of FreeBSD, its community and development
should only happen
for clarifying said details for some document being written.
? The wording probably needs some more polish though.
