[ironic] Moving to office hours as opposed to weekly meetings for the next month

Hi Jacob,

Sorry for the delay. My hope was that APAC contributors would coalesce
around a time, but it really seems that has not happened, and I am
starting to think that the office hours experiment has not really
helped as there has not been a regular reminder each week. :(

Happy to discuss more, but perhaps a establishing a dedicated APAC
sync-up meeting is what is required?
