Thank you all for the feedback. I see a consensus forming around moving 
the weekly meeting slot both from 21:00 UTC and from 14:00 UTC to a 
single 16:00 UTC slot. I'm aware that this is bad for our contributors 
from China. To help with this pain I offer to be available on Thurday 
8:00 - 9:00 UTC on #openstack-nova to discuss any issues that needs to 
be brought up on the 16:00 UTC meeting (almost like an office hour). 
Let's see how this works out and please give me feedback any time.
