Devchat used to be once a week and its time would adjust as Daylight Saving Time (DST) adjusted around the world. This was originally desired as a way to keep the devchat meeting at the same time across timezones to allow folks to regularly plan on when to attend. However, the process for updating the meeting time as DST changed became more time-intensive than desired and with the addition of a second devchat each week there are now two conversations that folks can attend. With that, the change was made.
