New Meeting Time – Continued Discussion

Thank you for participating in last week’s poll!

Per @mikeschroder the poll results highlighted two main times when two different sets of 10 people can attend a meeting.

The proposed new times are: Wednesdays at 1800 UTC and Monday at 1400 UTC.

Meeting notes will be used for more asynchronous communication.

Options proposed by folks attending the chat were:
1) Alternate two meeting times/dates.
2) Change the meeting time to 1600 or 1700 UTC.
3) Hold two separate weekly meetings at two separate times.
4) Keep the current meeting time.
