Hi Yvette,

It is not at all unusual for the meeting to be cancelled right after a
face-to-face, especially when some members are still traveling back home.  

Also, I think you will find that the working group would cancel the call for
any holiday or event that caused a large portion of the working group to not
be present.     

This one was cancelled because of the percentage of regular members who
would not be able to attend.

I guess this is because of Thanksgiving? The US is the only country who
celebrates Thanksgiving, as far as I know. Does this mean that if the US has
a holiday, the meeting is cancelled by default? How many countries have to
celebrate a holiday before a meeting is cancelled? Or is it because the
conference bridge is located in the US?

Since this is an international newsgroup I would appreciate it if meetings
that are cancelled because of holidays somewhere in the world would be
announced a bit earlier. If I hadn't had to cancel, I would not have known
there was no meeting tonight and would have called in for nothing and
wondered what was happening.

For you Americans out there: Enjoy the holiday!
