My choice:  Option #2.


It is what I thought I was voting for at Tokyo, except in the 12-12:30 time

(as Mark and Lynne said this morning) participate between 12-12:30.

With Option 1 we could never do an all-QAWG telecon of 1-1/2 hours.  Unless 
the chairs coordinate all members and schedule another bridge slot -- 
conceivably impossible (and unfair to chairs!).

Based on experience before 8/26 publication, and 5/15 publication, this

(but maybe other Lead Editors disagree).  Btw, it's not just us who go 
crazy before publication:  SVG sometimes goes from 2-1/2 hours telecon time 
per week to 3-1/2 or 4, and just inserted (with 4 weeks notice) an extra
