I vote for providing times in human-readable form, i.e. "Eastern" time.
It's a lot easier to translate into the conditions of wherever you're
at.  At least for people not that accustomed to UTC math.

Seems good to me.

When discussing times, there is always the question whether we need to
add daylight savings or not.

As an example, in winter time middle europe is UTC+1, but in summer
time, we are UTC+2.

Are you suggesting 19:00 UTC+2 ? (which is UTC+1 in winter?) or would
this be 20:00?
