[openstack-dev] [Ironic] Proposing new meeting times

Hi all,

As discussed in Paris and at today's IRC meeting [1] we are going to be
alternating the time of the weekly IRC meetings to accommodate our
contributors in EMEA better. No time will be perfect for everyone, but as
it stands, we rarely (if ever) see our Indian, Chinese, and Japanese
contributors -- and it's quite hard for any of the AU / NZ folks to attend.

I'm proposing two sets of times below. Please respond with a "-1" vote to
an option if that option would cause you to miss ALL meetings, or a "+1"
vote if you can magically attend ALL the meetings. If you can attend,
without significant disruption, at least one of the time slots in a
proposal, please do not vote either for or against it. This way we can
identify a proposal which allows everyone to attend at a minimum 50% of the
meetings, and preferentially weight towards one that allows more
contributors to attend two meetings.

This link shows the local times in some major coutries / timezones around
the world (and you can customize it to add your own).

For reference, the current meeting time is 1900 UTC.

Option #1: alternate between Monday 1900 UTC && Tuesday 0900 UTC.  I like
this because 1900 UTC spans all of US and western EU, while 0900 combines
EU and EMEA. Folks in western EU are "in the middle" and can attend all



Option #2: alternate between Monday 1700 UTC && Tuesday 0500 UTC. I like
this because it shifts the current slot two hours earlier, making it easier
for eastern EU to attend without excluding the western US, and while 0500
UTC is not so late that US west coast contributors can't attend (it's 9PM
for us), it is harder for western EU folks to attend. There's really no one
in the middle here, but there is at least a chance for US west coast and
EMEA to overlap, which we don't have at any other time.


I'll collate all the responses to this thread during the week, ahead of
next week's regularly-scheduled meeting.
