I was only intending to talk about the best time for the alternate meeting.

The main/US/original meeting time still seems to have been fairly well
attended lately, aside from the interruption due to summit; I haven't been
aware of any meetings that got abandoned or shortened due to lack of
participants in that timezone (except for the week of summit), and I
haven't heard anyone in that meeting talking about how hard it is for them
to make the meeting.

But perhaps I'm not hearing the people who'd like to be at that meeting -
maybe because they can't *be* at the meeting to be heard?

Derek has suggested a Doodle poll to help us look at which hours across the
week people would find it possible to make the meeting - I think the data
it gathers would help us figure out if it's worth considering moving the US
meeting time as well.

If there are other people who'd like to move the time of the US meeting so
they can make it, now is probably a good time to speak up!
