One suggestion. I think we could have 2 kinds of time slots. One that is
APAC / EMEA friendly and another which is NA / EMEA friendly.
If we do well with Etherpad / IRC / emails, we can certainly deal with
missing folks in some sessions and eventually do smaller sessions but more
distributed time-wise.

Example given: "Session about improving Upgrade CLI"
- a first session on EMEA morning / APAC afternoon; notes taken in
etherpad, sent to ML
- a second session on EMEA afternoon / NA morning; notes taken in etherpad,
summary of both sessions sent to ML; if consensus isn't reached; use ML or
schedule a third session out of band eventually.

I would like to see this exercise as an opportunity to learn how we can
make decisions in async; involving everyone interested in a topic, no
matter the location/timezone.

So what I propose is that each session leader makes sure that the sessions
can cover an overlapped time (hard to define though) or think about the
"multiple smaller sessions" idea.

What do you think?
