Thanks for pushing this! I'm very happy to see regular irc meetings
being tried!

(I'll just repeat my comments from irc here.)

I think a schedule with 2 regular dates in every month works much better
than every 2 weeks, because we have those months with 5 weeks and thus
it becomes confusing on which $day_of_the_week the meeting is, plus it
will eventually clash with other dates which are "every tuesday in the
Xth week of the month."

please do it with at least a week advanced warning this time ;-) 

About the suggested dates: I don't like that it only contains European
evening dates. (Because that's night for Asia and also because it's
evening for Europeans.) - I've voted accordingly, that is, with pretty
low availability.

Meetings should also use meetbot, so we get linkable logs with
actionable items etc for free. (And which are pretty good to be linked
from the weekly reports!)
