One of the things we discussed at yesterday's meeting was the possible
reduction of meeting frequency, coupled with the increased usage of 
this list as a 'meeting place'. 

The nature of a mailing list, as long as it's fairly quick at the
post turnarounds, is such that it doesn't favour any particular timezone;
I would suggest that we try to use this list more, and take the pressure
off the timezone problems with the live meeting. I mean, for example, 
instead of keeping something until the meeting, just blurt it out here
on the list; I don't think it would be a bad thing for the list to become
more 'relaxed' and friendly (i.e. more talk and less announcements) 
especially if it was to the benefit of TZ-free communication.
