Design meeting times

It occurs to me that our design meeting time is 11:30 pm - 1:30 am in India where many of our active participants are located.  If we do change the implementers' meeting to a monthly session of OMRSU, I think we should use that slot as an opportunity for people to weigh in on the issues from the design meeting based on the minutes.  We could require people who wanted to participate to edit the etherpad to show their interest.  We might even want to defer some decisions from the Wednesday to the Thursday meeting where people we'd like to have participated weren't present.

Re: Design meeting times

We could also consider trying to move the design call to an earlier time of the day...

Thanks Roger for being considerate to us...
I like the idea that it can be done on Thursday before the Developer call or earlier on Wednesdays

Re: Design meeting times


+ one million for earlier scheduled calls.

Scheduling the call earlier also helps because of the following reason - Many of us (myself included) have problems with internet connectivity.  Network is always slow, and its practically impossible to make Skype calls from home. 

If the calls were scheduled earlier, at least we'll be able to find a good internet cafe with tolerable connection speeds.
This might sound funny, but I've been 'ejected' from several calls because the cafe owner wanted to close shop for the day :-)

However, that said, I realize that this means everyone else needs to wake up even earlier. 

The only 100%  foolproof solution is that everyone stays awake all the time :-)
