Meeting frequency
We have, on the average, a meeting every 8.5 months, and lately closer to (a multiple of) 8. This means we keep cycling in the pattern Jan-Sep-May. A period of 9 months also means a cycle, like Jan-Oct-Jul-Apr.

Earlier WG meetings had no such pattern. Of the first 32 meetings, only 2 were in January; of the last 32 meetings, 8 were in January (counting #32, [ADA], in both groups).

It might be better if the meetings were spread out more, so that we do not have one quarter of the meetings in the coldest month. A uniform spread can be obtained by having a meeting every 37 weeks. Fixing target dates well in advance has several other advantages, such as making it easier to avoid clashes. Nevertheless, these dates should be just targets, with local organizers free to adapt as convenient.

Below is a list of what that would mean for the next few meetings; we believe that there are no clashes with Christmas, New Year, or Easter. (Continuing the pattern, #102 would be in the week immediately following Easter Sunday, and the scheduled week for #103, week 1 of 2037, is not a full week—it starts on a Thursday—so around then the algorithm needs some refinement.)
