I'm very strongly all in favor, thanks for bringing it up.

About the time-zone issue, I know some other teams with the same situation,
conduct their meetings
at different times, so that each time it's inconvenient for different

Also, I know some of us are full-time on the project, but having regular
meetings to me is independent
of that, and I'd really like to hear in these meetings from people like
Joel and Hanmin too.
