Dear Group Participants,

I'm forwarding a message from my W3C colleagues about changes to the  
schedule of upcoming teleconferences due to the clocks being moved to  
summer time earlier in the US that in other places. The message is  
attached below.

In our Group's specific case, teleconferences are scheduled at  
9:00EST. This means that for people in the US there won't be any  
changes, but for people in Europe (maybe in other places, too) some  
upcoming teleconferences will be an hour earlier than usual. Schedule  
and pointer to check your local time follow.

* March 4: 9:00EST, 14:00Z

* March 11: No Chairs call (due to F2F2)

* March 18: 9:00EST, 13:00Z

* March 25: 11:00EST, 15:00Z (Chairs call)

* April 1: 9:00EST, 14:00Z -- "back to normal"
