chaps,

since the W3C has just moved to Webex and we are approaching our first 
Daylight Savings time change, no-one is quite sure what will happen next 
week while the US and Europe are out of synch (and possibly other time 
zones).

as far as i can tell, the regular Webex call that we set up was tied to 
wall time per the London time zone, since i set it up and my timezone 
was set to London time in the Webex preferences.

our clocks change back to UTC this weekend, but the US changes a week 
later.

so, if our guess about the Webex setup is correct, that would mean that 
the conference call slot will be an hour earlier next week in the US, 
but the same time in the UK. The following week, it would be at the same 
time as currently scheduled in both countries.

i don't know how this affects people dialing in from Morocco, Iran and 
Finland. Shervin, Behdad, could you take a quick look at that?

especially given that you are at the Unicode Conf and I'm at TPAC next 
week, i wonder whether it might be simpler to just cancel next week's 
telecon??

we would still need to assess the impact on callers in other countries 
after the US/Europe situation settles, and that will depend to an extent 
on what we find out about the base time for the call (ie. is it tied to 
London or some other time zone).

cheers,
ri
