My vote: option #1 or option #3

We spent a lot of time on the f2f discussing the timing issue, did
careful analysis and everybody voted for the 11am - 12pm with additional
reserved 0.5h.

As for the fact that Mark and Lynne and may be some other folks cannot
make it after 12 - should we ever require an additional time for
QAWG-all work, we can reorder agenda, so that issues important for the
folks are discussed within the first 1h. This 0.5h  after 12pm is the
special extra time - not the regular. 

Should I be in minority, I also suggest option #3. I honestly doubt I'll
be able to be in clear working mind at 7:30am Monday morning on the
regular basis:)

Option #3
-----
every Monday
slot:  10:30-12
agenda goal:  11:00-12:00*
10:30-11:  normally for editors, etc
10:30-11:  occasional all-QAWG time if needed**
