Seconding Doug's call.

On concrete suggestion from me is to give enough time ahead of the
video meeting so folks who are not able to participate can provide
their input via other medium for consideration during the meeting.
Folks will also be able to chime in about if the time would work or
not for them as well. Definitely please don't make such meetings as a
regular thing for sure.
