phase the new name in

Xin, I'd like to discuss this issue with you by some means other than
email. Could you please phone me at (646) 461-3412 (my Google Voice
call forwarding number, New York, NY); or is Skype voice chat okay?
(Those are my preferred options.)
Or how about IRC or MSN text discussion?
I can summarize the results of our conversation to the mailing list afterwards.
