Subject: TC conference calls start time

As discussed on our last call, the move from daylight savings time in the 
US (and other countries) has resulted in the WS BPEL TC conference call 
start time moving an hour later for those who do not observe daylight 
savings.  In particular, in Japan it now starts at 1am.   A member has 
asked us to consider a change to either an hour earlier or 4 hours later.  
We also have members in AEST which is an hour later - or 2 am (if I've got 
the addition right).   If we start an hour earlier it provides some releif 
but is 7am for the west coast where we have many members.  On the other 
hand a call at 12 noon pacific time would be better for both JST and AEST 
but it is 10pm or thereabouts for the European folks (depending on exact 
time zone).   We have a substantial number of European (including UK) 
members.  You may  recall that we held a ballot to see how many folks were 
effected by the extreme cases.  You can view the results of that here:
In one of our first meetings, we discussed the desirability of keeping the 
calls at the same time, rather than alternating to share the discomfort, 
to simplify calendar management.   If we want to continue this approach, 
any change would be effective for a few months at least. 

We can do a straw poll on changing the time for the call if that seems 
appropriate.  I thought I'd start an email thread to see what folks think 
and  if anyone has a better idea.
