Can we clarify this?
I thought the meetings were defined at a UTC time - SocialCG - W3C Wiki says
Meetings in general are alternating Fridays and Saturdays. On Friday at 1700 UTC and Saturday at 1500 UTC.
However today’s meeting happened at a different time: 2021-05-01 Fediverse Interest Group Meeting
- 2pm UTC
I think I know what happened, based on another comment on that post:
Per the calendar
So this meeting was set based on the NextCloud calendar.
The problem is, that calendar - the NextCloud one - has a timezone “bug”. It’s set to reoccur an event in London time NOT UTC time - ie, it stays 3 oclock (London Time) whenever the event is in the year. However, the event is defined at UTC time so if you then look at London time you should see the event time (London time) shift by an hour over the year.
I did point this out when the calendar was created: SocialCG meetings calendar - #2 by jarofgreen
The ActivtyPub aware event listing I put together carefully always created events at UTC time - so if you look down the page (it should open showing them in London time) you’ll see they jump by an hour at one point: https://denof.theoccasionoctopus.net/a/w3_social_web_incubator_community_group/manage/event?eventListFilterDataSubmitted=1&showCancelled=1&set_timezone=Europe/London
So this is a long winded way of saying it’s not my fault I was late for the meeting
But seriously; can we clarify meeting start times for future?
SocialCG - W3C Wiki says 1500 UTC
2021-05-01 Fediverse Interest Group Meeting says 2pm UTC.
Something is wrong
