* Meeting Time Announcement

Note that Daylight Savings Time (Summer Time) will be ended in various 
countries over the next few weeks.  In particular, it will end in Germany 
on October 26th, and in the United States on November 2nd.

The ODF TC meeting time will be adjusted as follows:

1) The meeting on 20 October will be at the normal time for everyone, at 
1400 UTC. 

2) The meeting on 27 October will be after Germany sets their clock back 
one hour, but before this occurs in the US.  We will continue to meet at 
1400 UTC.  This results in an unchanged local time for the meeting of 10am 
EDT in the US.  In Germany the meeting will shift one hour earlier, to 
1500 CET.

3) At the meeting of 3 November, and for all subsequent meetings (until 
next Spring when DST starts again) we will meet at 1500 UTC. This will 
preserve the meeting time at 1000 ET, 1600 CET, but will cause the meeting 
to be one hour later for any countries which do not set their clocks back 
an hour in the Fall.

Websites such as http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/meeting.html can be 
used to confirm the local time corresponding to 1500 UTC at your location.
