Hi Kate,

Good point, (I am back in Stockholm).  The current time of the meeting 
is purely for the convenience of existing LWG members ... after work for 
Europeans (majority) and morning for the Americas. I would like to feel 
our way to including folks who want to work on specific issues and will 
timing on the agenda.
