I am +1. This is a great initiative.

IMO, we could make it really regular (i.e., a specific week-day of a
specific week in a month), with a rolling time (for the time-zone issue).
In this matter, we could maybe clear more in advance our agenda instead of
trying to find a date which accommodates everyone.

Just a thought.
