Results usually vary, but it might be worth trying to have meetings;
there are other activities which don't necessarily require the presence
of the folks in Israel. I've found that using holiday-ish times is
usually good for things like brainstorming, finding easy fix-it items,
etc; "top 5 wiki pages that need love," analyzing data/statistics on
downloads from a new release.
That's a good point - we would need a different agenda to focus the
meetings and help people decide if they should be there.
These things are always difficult; it's less exciting to have not
many folks in the meeting, and sometimes not incredibly productive, but
I always feel like I'm somehow discouraging/disenfranchising people in
other regions when cancelling meetings because of local holidays. I
usually try to just keep the pulse going and try and bring in other
folks to do some fun stuff that may be more enticing than usual :)
Yes, fair point - it's the wrong thing to do, and the wrong message to
send. Let's maintain it - we can certainly have anopther meeting re the
website redesign (Garrett's been working on a MediaWiki theme for a
couple of weeks now) and release management, as you suggest.
