Thanks for doing some leg work on this. I concur that Tuesdays or Thursdays
are best; Tuesday preferable for me.

Re: an RTC server, I am not familiar with openfire, but something that can
provide a hangouts-like experience and allow local presentation would be
nifty. Unfortunately the best encoders tend not to be OSS, so some bending
of the rules might be required.

I have one or two Anchorage-local contacts who might be interested in the
AV side; and I might be able to donate some equipment, so let me know if
you have a specific build in mind. I imagine archiving and remote
participation, desirable features in that order, after streaming.
