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.

Cheers,
Magnus


Out of curiousity, as this could affect us in the near future, could you
all post when DST changes occur in your country? For the United States
it will be first Sunday in November (November 2nd)

Thanks!
