Hmm.... it's not really problematic to do a Doodle poll every year or
two to find a meeting time that works well for everyone. I don't think
you need to step down because of a conflict with a particular timeslot!
(FWIW, moving the meeting time would be convenient for me. For the past
year or so, I've had another meeting that starts at 9:30 Eastern, and
it's not easy for me to keep up with the WG meeting during this time.)
But if *all* of your morning hours are unavailable every day of the
week, then I doubt it would be possible to find a time that will work
for US, Europe, and Asia. Really the only way to make these work for
everyone is early morning US, late night Asia.
I can set up a Doodle poll. I didn't want to assume that anything
should change just for me. OTOH, it does make sense to check that
we're not losing or inconveniencing others due to timing. Agreed,
there's no way to make every TZ work, morning US is best. (Which is
exactly my conundrum since I have many slots filled with EU folks.)
Most of my mornings are crammed, Friday sometimes being the exception.
I've set up a Doodle poll and people can fill it in:
