I totally agree.  It will be extraordinarily hard to convince my management
to send me to Europe twice in two weeks, and, moreover, even if I could
convince them, it would be extraordinarily disruptive to me.  I remember
discussion at the first f2f against a similar, but less disruptive situation.

Further, I believe that Jim's action item was to send out the f2f schedule
proposal created at the 1st f2f meeting so that the proposal could be
discussed by the group.  What has happened is that dates and locations
have been changed, apparently unilaterally, and there does not appear to be
any chance for discussion.
