I might have to miss this one since it will be 3:00AM in Sydney. What a pity.

Just in case you didn't receive it, I sent out the following yesterday:

With such a globally dispersed group its going to be very difficult
to schedule meetings at a time that is convenient for everyone. Early
morning Australia would be late night Europe
which isn't ideal either. I expect most of the work of the group will
be conducted using email and we'll only schedule telephone meetings
where necessary, e.g. to discuss a particularly knotty issue.

For our second meeting I'll re-poll with a selection of later times
to see who would be able to join then but for the first telcon next
week I'd like to stick with the time indicated above since quite a
few folks already confirmed that they could attend.
