0100 now, 0000 in a few weeks when DST flips here. I'd prefer 0500 to 0000

My first priority is making sure that theacimum 
Speaking for myself, I find the current time is slightly painful, but doable. 0500 will be more painful.

If I'm reading the iCal feed linked from https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Meetings correctly, it looks like there's a PCI passthrough meeting scheduled at that time in -alt. Is that correct? Is the iCal feed canonical? I don't see the meeting listed on the page, but maybe that's also because of the tiny little screen I'm using right now.

If I'm doing the timezone math right, it looks like the iCal feed says that 2100UTC Wednesday is free every second week. Once all the DST flips happen, that'll be 2100 London, 1500 SF, 0700 Sydney. 

If we ran at that time on alternate weeks I'd have one I could make easily and one I could probably make at a stretch.
