The ASN usage is a novel idea, and would cater to lots of issues aobut

The date and time mentioned is good for me personally, and as a
collaborative effort, that is the best that can be done.  Those who could
not join, unfortunate, those who can, GREAT!

Looking forward to chatting with all of you on 18/Oct
