I am strongly opposed to both F2F and telecon meetings, for reasons that 
have been discussed in depth in the past. I really do not believe there is 
any reason to do anything other than by e-mail, and in fact believe that 
formal face-to-face meetings can and usually do result in significantly 
worse results than considered discussion by e-mail.
