Hello Eric, all

I pretty much assumed that #2 was going to happen. Really, our meetings are
times when we can all agree to get together to field questions and perhaps work
on problems together. I never intend to conduct actual business during these
meetings since not everyone can attend. Any time anything important WRT the
team needs to be discussed for a binding decision it will be done here (like
we're doing now).
IMO, the attrition could be due to undefined agenda. We need to aim towards having
fruitful 'engaging' discussion. It could be reviewing the security activities that
we did over the week. Or if there needs to be a change in how we tackle unresponsive
maintainers or dead packages. Last time I had written here about this issue and that we
need to be able to retire unused/dead packages and close security bugs against them. These
are just examples, there could other options too.
FWIW, I'm not against hosting a second meeting or changing our
meeting time if a better time exists. That said, I've reset the survey
to remove everyone's availability and added some additional times that
I'm willing to be available. Please complete the survey (remember to select
your timezone so you can see your local time) soon so we can see when a better
time is to meet. I hope we can revisit this early next week and make a change.
11:00 EST(UTC-5:00) ie. 21:30 IST(UTC+5:30) is good.
Thank you for reconsidering it.
