Hello svg-wg,

Trying to work out new telcon times since the US will move to daylight savings time next week[1]. Until we decide on new times our telcons will be first an hour earlier for everyone outside the US, and then two hours earlier for AU when they switch from DST (April 5). 

Looking at timeanddate[2] and comparing this to heycam's telconplanner[3] seems to indicate that 11 AM UTC is a time that could fit. The other slot is 5.30 AM UTC, but is a bit rough for the US since that means the telcon starts at 1.30 AM.

Another option would be to start at 1 PM UTC, but it might be a bit late for those in AU.

Here's a proposal for new times (note that times are calculated for May 2009):

  Mon 11:00 AM UTC, Mon 1:00 PM Central Europe, Mon 9:00 PM Eastern Australia, Mon 7:00 AM Eastern US/Canada.
  Wed 11:00 AM UTC, Wed 1:00 PM Central Europe, Wed 9:00 PM Eastern Australia, Wed 7:00 AM Eastern US/Canada.

Alternative:

  Mon 11:00 AM UTC, Mon 1:00 PM Central Europe, Mon 9:00 PM Eastern Australia, Mon 7:00 AM Eastern US/Canada.
  Thu 1:00 PM UTC, Thu 3:00 PM Central Europe, Thu 11:00 PM Eastern Australia, Thu 9:00 AM Eastern US/Canada.

Cheers
/Erik
