I thought I would put forward a view regarding the best time for
conference calls being held world wide.
The current situation regarding the conference calls is such that the
people situated in South-East Asia and Australia need to be awake at
3-4AM to attend the calls.

As I assume it to be common sense, confcalls not beeing the way to get
community wide decisions. What about building local/timezone based
groups holding conf calls at a time convenient to their members?
Afterwards sharing the results on the mailing lists where people can
read them at any convenient moment?

Might I suggest That we move the times earlier in the day to around
1200-1400 GMT.

As far as I can see this would exclude the least number of people
around the world from attending the calls.

Where is the timezone nobody would be excluded?

What do others think?

See above. Another fact to consider: many people are excluded simply by
not beeing capable to follow nor participate a spoken english
coversation at telephone but can do so writing english or persoally

My conclusion: Conf calls can complete the daily community work but
should not be a in any way main part of it.


my pleasure :o))
