Greetings Everyone!

This week, during the weekly meeting, we seemed to reach consensus that
we would try taking a break from meetings[0] and moving to orienting
around using the mailing list[1] and our etherpad "whiteboard" [2].
With this, we're going to want to re-evaluate in about a month.
I suspect it would be a good time for us to have a "mid-cycle" style
set of topical calls. I've gone ahead and created a poll to try and
identify a couple days that might be ideal for contributors[3].

But in the mean time, we want to ensure that we have some times for
office hours. The suggestion was also made during this week's meeting
that we may want to make the office hours window a little larger to
enable more discussion.

So when will we have office hours?

Ideally we'll start with two time windows. One to provide coverage
to US and Europe friendly time zones, and another for APAC contributors.

* I think 2-4 PM UTC on Mondays would be ideal. This translates to
  7-9 AM US-Pacific or 10 AM to 12 PM US-Eastern.
* We need to determine a time window that would be ideal for APAC
  contributors. I've created a poll to help facilitate discussion[4].

So what is Office Hours?

Office hours are a time window when we expect some contributors to be
on IRC and able to partake in higher bandwidth discussions.
These times are not absolute. They can change and evolve,
and that is the most important thing for us to keep in mind.


If there are any questions, Please let me know!
Otherwise I'll send a summary email out on next Monday.
