Let me restate the question a bit as I think I'm hearing two different
responses that may be getting conflated.

Option 1:  There's a single Ops Midcycle that shifts around and we
look at ways to increase remote participation. (obviously this doesn't
preclude other meetups)

Option 2: There are multiple Ops Meetups around midcycle (presumably
starting with North America, Asia, and Europe) and we look at ways of
coordinationg those re reduce duplication of effort any synthesis of

I was advocating option 1 mostly because I think synthesis of option 2
is harder than stepping up preparation of etherpads before sessions
and review of them afterward is which is motly the level of remote
participation I'd envision in the first case (possibly also running
some email threads on any reccommendations that come out and seem
controvertial for any reason)

So far though seems the tide is runiing toward option 2, multiple
meet-ups. Though wee're still at a very small sample size.
