Thanks for re-arranging the meeting schedule.

Aligning with the current community way sounds reasonable to me.
I missed many meetings due to the mismatch between my schedule based on ICS
file and the real schedule.

It is a nice idea to have several folks are meeting chairs.
Anyway I hope more folks will be in i18n meetings, though my attendance
will not change a lot.
