Remainder of the year (was Re: Proposed call schedule change)

Next week I will be in Europe and our WG call would be 2am local time.
As a result those calls have had low attendance which is part of the
appeal to this new schedule. 

I am canceling next week's WG call. I would be nice to wrap up the
outstanding issue for VISS by email.

Since there have been no comments from those who were not at the F2F to
the proposed schedule, I am interpreting silence as consent and will
work on WebEx coordinates, reminders and such.

The BG is scheduled to meet next on the 12 December. I will be in
Detroit but available.

The next WG call would be on the 19th of December although some are
likely starting their holidays. I am traveling overnight (redeye
flight) and that morning but unless there are flight delays can make

What probably makes the most sense is to have the 12th BG meeting be
the last of the year and to allow for WG topics to be included.
