Because you're talking about calling a meeting as being no big deal,
which might be true if everyone were in the same office, but when we're
spread across the planet, it *is* a big deal.

Now I'm confused.  I thought you were arguing in favour of weekly
meetings while I was arguing in favour of just raising subjects on the
mailing list whenever you wanted. What are you arguing in favour of?

Sure. And you can. We're right here on this very mailing list. In a
project that is spread this far across the planet, you simply cannot
expect to be able to just "call a meeting" and have everyone turn up.
Any time you find will be in someone's evening and in someone else's
middle-of-the-night, and most of us probably also have busy calendars.
