Hi Michel,

This means that the default is to not have the meeting and people won't know for sure until the day before.  I'd like to think we can do better than that.

No problem, but if we know in advance helps us work together as a an efficient and effective team.  

I propose that if the meeting is setup with a regular time that the default is that takes place, and then it makes sense that a reminder is sent out the day before ("reminder" rather than "announcement")
And that's a good time for the reminder to go out.

If a meeting is NOT going to happen, that should be known in advance - presumably can be decided/determined at the end of the previous call - the participants can decide if the next regularly scheduled time is good or too soon for the next steps to be undertaken.

And the HCLSIG wiki could be updated with an accurate date for the next meeting.  If it's not going to be maintained, then it shouldn't be on the website.  It could be replaced with an indication to contact the task leader. (but i think it's preferable to have the website correct and up-to-date)

(my 2 cents)

No reminder was sent, but we do have a regularly scheduled telcon, so I made sure to catch an early train so I could be back at my desk in time.   So, are we having regularly scheduled telcons or are we having telcons only when reminders are sent?  (Just so I can plan accordingly)
