This commit documents the existence and occurrence of in-person meetings
by the Fedora Council, typically held on an annual basis or shared with
other major events like Flock or DevConf conferences. These meetings are
not actually a secret, since we already plan and discuss the agenda for
these meetings in open, public channels. However, our charter does not
mention them, and it should!

This pulls the same language used by @mattdm in a previous Pull Request.
Since that PR has a merge conflict and this change is already approved,
I am facilitating it in a new Pull Request.

Additionally, this change continues the gradual migration of our entire
charter to follow the same AsciiDoc conventions shared by other docs in
the Fedora community, e.g. one sentence per line. Some semantic changes
were also made for brevity.

I am pushing this commit as conditionally approved along with other in-
person discussion happening the week of 6 February 2023 in Frankfurt,
Germany.
