Regarding our weekly openSUSE-GNOME meetings, we had a discussion this morning about our regularly scheduled timeshift meetings which occur first of the month at 11:00 UTC. It was agreed that that hour isn't proving effective in getting regular attendance and that we needed to consider a more optimal time, if we even continue timeshifts at all.
I've discussed possibilities with several people in different key areas globally to get a feel and am presenting the findings for discussion on this email thread. Please review and communicate your thoughts. Depending on the responses, we may go with the new timeshift next week:
Option 1) Eliminate Timeshifting altogether. This would make it very difficult for people in eastern Asia/Australia to attend meetings.
Option 2) Create new timeshift for 23:00 UTC. This seems to get the widest support globally. However, India (Our beloved Evo team) would be left out. I discussed with Srag, and they were unable to attend the old timeshift meeting anyway and for them regular time meetings are best. They said they would be comfortable with missing a timeshift meeting.
FYI: 23:00 UTC = 6 p.m. for you folks in the U.S. Midwest and Mexico, and late evening (after Rodrigo's television shows) in Europe and 9 a.m. in Sydney, land of the Magnus.
Option 2: +1 Also, as Funky suggested 2200UTC, let me add that I'm ok with 2100, 2200 or 2300.
