Hi Brian,

I agree with Rajat. Meeting happened in mid-night will prevent people to attend, except they have topics that must to talk with team.
Openstack is widely used in Asia, but there’s no much core from Asia (in countries that the meeting in mid-night). Meeting time is one of the reason😊
Nova have two meetings, two time zone friendly. But I don’t like to divide the meeting to two.

Hi Brian,

It's great that the change in weekly meeting time is considered, here are my opinions on the same from the perspective of Asian countries (having active upstream developers)

Current meeting time (16:00 - 17:00 UTC)

INDIA : is 9:30 - 10:30 PM IST (UTC+05:30) is a little late but manageable.

CHINA : is 12:00 - 01:00 AM CST (UTC+08:00) is almost impossible to attend.

JAPAN : is 01:00 - 02:00 AM JST (UTC+09:00) similar to the case as China.

IMO shifting the meeting time 2 hours earlier (UTC 14:00) might bring more participation and would ease out timings for some (including me) but these are just my thoughts.

Thanks and Regards
Rajat Dhasmana

(Just to be completely clear -- we're only gathering information at this
point.  The Cinder weekly meeting is still Wednesdays at 16:00 UTC.)

As we discussed at today's meeting [0], a request has been made to hold
the weekly meeting earlier so that it would be friendlier for people in
Asia time zones.

Based on the people in attendance today, it seems that a move to 14:00
UTC is not out of the question.

Thus, the point of this email is to solicit comments on whether we
should change the meeting time to 14:00 UTC.  As you consider the impact
on yourself, if you are in a TZ that observes Daylight Savings Time,
keep in mind that most TZs go back to standard time over the next few weeks.

(I was going to insert an opinion here, but I will wait and respond in
this thread like everyone else.)
