We'd have a heck of a time organizing around a block schedule. For
example Auth/Acq is four projects in evenly spaced timezones. (Not that
this is a problem for me. I work weekends, but I don't sleep.) Also
there's some overlap, with stuff being built around other stuff all

Just a thought that we'd be better off setting the first 18 hours as
freeform to set meeting times for interested parties who can then set
their own times. Anyone willing to run a sceduling 'bot? Maybe next

Frankly, large meetings like this are something we should do quarterly?
I've had a heck of a time interacting with anyone interested in FrePort
or in finding someone to help with the snags (Someone who could write
the SQL to set up five tables, and one user would be greatly
appreciated!) I'm certain other developers have hit similar snags? Bulk
meetings give us more of an opportunity to schmooze; especially if
they're held at regular intervals.

This first one won't even be a test case, just a good set-up for what we
need to do to make an infrastructure to support a better one next time.
