[tools-pmc] Proposed Meeting times ...

Yes, apologies, I did mean 11 AM (Eastern).
And, since you said "Second Tuesday" works for you ... let's tabulate that as a concrete proposal which at least 2 of us can make :)

"Second Tuesdays", 11 AM (Eastern) .... proposed first meeting on 12/10/2013

Any counter proposals?

Thanks and it's an honor for me.

Second Tuesday sounds good to me.

I hope you mean 11 AM (not PM) EST which would be 6 PM for me which would be quite better compared to other meetings I join to.

I would not be able to join any meeting after Dec 15th.
