Bug Description

We currently screen scrape launchpad using BeautifulSoup to get some info about each blueprint. This information is exposed over the Lp API. We should ideally just use the API.

Specifically http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~summit-hackers/summit/trunk/view/head:/summit/schedule/models/meetingmodel.py#L188
