Based on the feedback, I will propose the following times as potential
meeting times:
Wed: 10am ­ 12pm EST/3pm ­ 5pm GMT
        11am ­ 1pm EST/4pm ­ 6pm GMT
        12pm ­ 2pm EST/5pm ­ 8pm GMT
Thur: 10am ­ 12pm EST/3pm ­ 5pm GMT
        11am ­ 1pm EST/4pm ­ 6pm GMT
        12pm ­ 2pm EST/5pm ­ 8pm GMT
Fri: 10am ­ 12pm EST/3pm ­ 5pm GMT
        11am ­ 1pm EST/4pm ­ 6pm GMT
        12pm ­ 2pm EST/5pm ­ 8pm GMT

I would expect this to be a standing meeting, occurring every 2 weeks, with
 the exception of the the weeks we have the face-to-face meetings.  Please
 send your preferences, and we I will do the best to accommodate the
 number of people we can.
