Re: April face-to-face meetings for HTML and WebApps

It's Passover [1]. Passover begins in the evening of Friday, April 6,
2012, and ends in the evening of Saturday, April 14, 2012.

As it happens, your calendar hits the *end* of Passover which is just
as major of a holiday as the beginning (the middle is somewhat minor).
At the risk of being seen as supporting an information source [2].

The last silicon valley item was an offline webapps thing on a
Saturday. That wasn't well considered and I have yet to see minutes
from it.

But seriously: Please NO. While I love my friends in the bay area and
wouldn't mind visiting them for the holiday, it'd pretty much suck.

Dear chairs, could you please create a basic meeting scheduling check-list:
1. Does it hit a Christian holiday?
(I'm not sure what these are, perhaps Good Friday?)
2. Does it hit a Jewish holiday?
(google or wikipedia, or timeanddate [3])
3. Does it hit a Muslim holiday?
4. Is it a Saturday?
Bad (see 2)

To help you out on that last one:
Ramadan begins in the evening of Friday, July 20, 2012, and ends in
the evening of Monday, August 20, 2012.

Thank you for asking in advance so that we can *not* do it at this time.
