Chef RFC #18: Community Dev Meeting Time Adjustment Proposal


#1

Hello all,

I would like to propose an adjustment to the regular community
developer meeting time to be more inclusive of edge time zones
(-12/+12).

Details here: https://github.com/opscode/chef-rfc/pull/18

Cheers,

AJ


#2

In previous standards groups with folks in Asia/Pacific and Europe, we used alternating times.

I’d prefer not to over complicate things, but that may be a long term solution.

Do we have a sense of how many people may be in attendance from any given
region? I know this is probably unscientific, as the more
time-zone-friendly it is, the higher probability that a given member may
attend in that time zone, but it’d be a good stat to reflect upon initially.

Could we get a show of hands for time zones on this list?

The One True Time Zone is surely UTC.

Anyway, may I suggest using doodle.com or similar rather than emails to
a ton of folks, for polls?

Here’s a survey that can be used to tell everyone which day works best for
you and which timezone you’re typically in.

Might be worth a blog entry or something, for people who aren’t
currently on the mailing list but still might like to attend?

The survey only mentions a UTC offset. Should we be putting Summer or
Winter offsets (for those of us who have DST)?

E.g.

UK == UTC (Winte/GMT)/UTC+1 (Summer/BST)
Eastern == UTC-5 (Winter/EST)/UTC-4 (Summer/EDT)
Pacific == UTC-8 (Winter/PST)/UTC-7 (Summer/PDT)

I thought about DST and figured the list was long enough as it was. So
maybe treat it as time zone you’ll likely be in for the next 8-10 weeks?
Also, I don’t think that one hour difference is going to make or break
your ability to attend.

It’s flawed science, no doubt but should be “good enough”.
