how to get people interested in coming to the meetings.

Make them on Saturday, so that someone that has interest can actually attend

I fear that the agenda you've laid out doesn't
address that very well.

I guess that change in agenda can help, but IRC on work days locks out people
that have strict company rules, which is IMO majority.

I'm not sure I am convinced of that. Weekends are *very* quiet on IRC
compared to weekdays. I see almost no activity in most of the channels
I log into, except for #suse support channel.

There is also the challenge that key players on a team won't be able to
make it on weekends because they're off work. And while I'm not a paid
worker, I certainly won't commit my weekends on a regular basis,
especially during summer months when I am working outside around the
house all the time.

However, in theory, all meeting times we use are "experimental." There
is never a perfect formula for the best time, and I would endorse anyone
who wants to attempt to organize a meeting on a weekend, whether it is
-gnome or something else. Even for those of us who can't make it, most
of us leave the IRC logged in, so we can always go back in our logs and
see what happened in meetings we did not attend.

I still have my doubts that a weekend meeting would get a "majority"
attendance, but someone should be willing to try and see what happens.
You never know! :-)
