There is a strong urge to get the meeting rescheduled from Friday to an
earlier day, and if that isn't possible, to compress the earlier meetings.
Further, the desire to stay out of Friday causes scheduling conflicts
earlier in the week for many that might not otherwise occur.
Leaving early means leaving on Thursday afternoon/evening.
I personally have never been able to reschedule a flight from late Friday
to early Friday - the flights are full.
I personally think that it would be nice to have a sign-up page for each
WG session in advance. This would help scheduling and room allocations.
