Before Monday is too late, Friday is already ending here in Europe. So 
lets do it Thursday, US morning, European afternoon. 10am Pacific? Ira 
what were your free slots on Thursday? If this does not work, lets do it 
on Friday.

Ira, or should we open the next OpenPrinting Steering Comittee Meeting 
to the LF and LSB folks as coordination meeting (Monday 3 March 2008, 
3pm Pacific, 6pm Eastern, Tue 12am Berlin, Tue 8am Japan) for the GSoC 
mentoring organization application of the Linux Foundation? And then 
perhaps do a real OP SC meeting the week after?

As OpenPrinting makes up the majority I will do the admin and Jeff, you 
will do the backup. OK?
