Re: Reminder: OpenStack team meeting - 21:00 UTC


We did discuss this time at great length when we set up the meeting in the first place.  At the time, there were a few people from Japan who said that they would rather have the meeting early so that it was before their morning commute rather than during, which is why it’s _quite_ so antisocial for Singapore/China/India.

I’m sure that this is open to review as our community grows.  Maybe at the next summit we could review the slot.  The Europeans aren’t a big problem, but with four US timezones and 3 ½ hours in Asia to worry about, it’s obviously not easy to find a slot that works.

hello ,everyone ,i am freshman in this team and from china.  Team meeting will be hold at 21:00 UTC and in China will be at 05:00 am,it is too early for us , is there another meeting by daylight?


I've been traveling to Korea and Singapore and have been in the same situation. I am simply waking at 4:45am for these meetings. Meeting notes and IRC logs are provided after every meeting for those unable to attend.

As the majority of developers are in the USA and Europe, I think the 21:00 UTC meeting time is fairly reasonable. I do propose that it might be more agreeable to push this to 24:00 UTC if the Europeans do not protest too badly. The time in the US would remain within or close to business hours on both coasts while making the meetings more reasonable for those in Asia.
