One step at a time :)

I'm sorry that I can't attend the QA team meeting, the orchestration
team meeting and the nova-db team meeting.

I've accepted that my Tuesday evening is sacrificed on the altar of IRC
meetings. After all, it's only the evening and only one of them.  I feel
quite sad that it's virtually impossible for anyone East of here to
attend as it'll be during their night, though.

I define my own working hours, but that's really beside the point.

Calling from 2 AM - 3 AM "working hours" doesn't make it a convenient
time slot, even if that means I take an hour off at a different time.
No matter what you call it and how much time you take off at another
time, it still means you have to get up in the middle of the night for a
meeting. And if I have a meeting mid-evening, that evening is lost.
