TWiki Release Meeting Time Change 2013

I would like to change the release meeting time that we currently have at 04:00 GMT so that we can accommodate also contributors in the USA East Coast and Europe, while keeping it accessible to HideyoImazu-san's team working out of Japan and China. It is difficult to find a suitable time. Hideyo-san and I discussed at the JerusalemReleaseMeeting2013x03x29. Here are the options:

Option A: Change to accommodate for USA East Coast (late for Europe, very early for Japan)

  • GMT: 10:01pm on Thu (11:01pm in winter)
  • California: 03:01pm on Thu
  • New York: 06:01pm on Thu
  • Europe: 00:01am on Fri (midnight Thu night)
  • Japan: 07:01am on Fri (08:01am in winter)

Option B: Change to accommodate for USA East Coast and Japan (only for night owls in Europe)

  • GMT: 11:01pm on Thu (12:01am on Fri in winter)
  • California: 04:01pm on Thu
  • New York: 07:01pm on Thu
  • Europe: 01:01am on Fri
  • Japan: 08:01am on Fri (09:01am in winter)

Option C: Keep current time, OK for California & Japan (late for USA East Coast, not suitable for Europe)

  • GMT: 04:01am on Fri (05:01am in winter)
  • California: 09:01pm on Thu
  • New York: 12:01am on Fri (midnight Thu night)
  • Europe: 06:01am on Fri
  • Japan: 01:01pm on Fri (02:01pm in winter)

Note: The time is dictated by U.S. time. When DST starts and ends in the U.S., the time shifts GMT-wise. There are brief periods in early and later winter, when meeting time in Europe is different from stated above.

Please let us know your preference.

After a full day work I do not have much energy left to join web meetings at midnight, but 6 in th emorning is not much better either. Although I would prefer Option C, I can agree to A, if it offeres advantages to others.

Any option would be OK for me personally to participate, but I think we should find ways to get more contributors involved, hence my vote for option A.

Please call me an anal character. I've made the time specification accurate.

-- Hideyo Imazu - 2013-04-12

We decided at JerusalemReleaseMeeting2013x04x26 to go with what has been voted here, e.g. option A. This will take effect at our next meeting, JerusalemReleaseMeeting2013x05x09.
