That's an argument against a meeting _time_,
but not really against a
meeting day. If it's a bug triage weekend (or any given couple of
days), then different people can be on at different times. And
particularly on a weekend, people's sleeping patterns vary quite a bit,
so I don't think it's a problem.
The IRC can be used as additional medium for fast exchange of thoughts
and instant feedback, but take in consideration that the whole process
can be very slow, at the times. Than if one is not present at right time
it will miss discussion. I would rather combine email and IRC as
appropriate, than to insist on one medium.
Like I said though anyway, this is a tried,
tested and proven method:
many other projects have these, and they work tremendously well.
I can see reasons why it works well and that is why I support the idea.
I agree with Francis on this. The interaction is a lot faster, more
helpful and also less frustrating on IRC than using ML and e-mails.
Just an example: I don't want to wait for 15 minutes to get an answer
when on IRC I can have direct interaction with the other users I'm
Moreover, doing testing days using ML/e-mail would just reduce their
effectiveness in my opinion. They would become just a sort of extensions
of what we are already doing through bugzilla/opensuse-factory.
