Thanks for the feedback Darrell,

The new proposal is to have one in North America 'morning' time. (10AM
PST), And another in ASIA day time, which is evening 7pm/6pm in Australia,
9pm Newzealand, 5pm Tokyo, 4pm Beijing.

For example, if we choose Every other Tuesday for meeting, and 1st of the
month is Tuesday, we would have North America time for 1st, and on 15th it
would be ASIA/Pacific time.

Hopefully, this way, we can cover all the timezones, and meeting minutes
would be committed to github repo, so that way, it will be easier for
everyone to be aware of what is happening.
