Hi Mark -

There was a tools team call today - I figure you missed it because it 
was at an awful time for where you are on the planet (3am if I did the 
math right).

The primary point of the calls is to go over in-flight and upcoming 
activities to help make it less likely that some of us surprise the 
rest. Sometimes we make priority adjustments during the calls.

I think we should discuss the call schedule (but I don't have the token 
to change it). We have regular participants in Sweden, Belgium, and the 
range of CONUS timezones. From our experience with trying to schedule 
IAB calls, I know there's no _good_ time, but is there a time that has 
worked better than others?
