I prefer evenings, because there is less likelihood of conflict with
work. Other than that I attend a number of user groups, so it's pretty
much around them. (Too numerous to list here). Just propose some
times, and I will let you know. For this week, I should be free
tonight and tomorrow night. Next week I will be on vacation in North
Carolina. (Unknown status on internet access, but if we have it I
should be able to meet pretty much any time.)

I life/work on the UWS, so I need to figure out if the travel time to
the Brooklyn meetup is going to be longer than the event. (Unclear,
because no hours were listed). If that isn't the case, I will almost
certainly be there. (Barring any last minute work emergencies).
As far as a separate list goes, I don't know if that is necessary yet.
I strongly suspect almost everyone in DebianNYC wants to hear the
latest on planning a DebConf in NYC. In addition we are more likely
to get additional folks involved if we keep on the main list.
