Irene -

As others have mentioned, there aren't really any formal times for
gathering on IRC. It's mostly a time zone issue. What I do is leave an
irc window open while I'm working on GNOME stuff. That way people can
find me if they need some to hash something out, and likewise I can find
them. We also gab a bit socially, which means if I *really* have
something to get done that requires a lot of concentration I don't IRC.

Malcolm's and Eric's point is a good one - it's prolly smart to post
something to the list if we actually raise an issue or decide something
that others would care about. I'll try to be better about that.
