PROPOSAL: Three Nights of Xubuntu

Good morning/afternoon/evening (please delete as appropriate).

We've got three blueprints up to set out discussion for the upcoming cycle.

Xubuntu Issues: The "Saucy" Cycle -- Development & Milestone Participation

Xubuntu Issues: The "Saucy" Cycle -- Software

Xubuntu Issues: The "Saucy" Cycle -- Forward-Looking Issues

With the way the schedule for UDS-1305 is shaping up, I'd like to propose shifting our discussions to after the UDS hours instead.  If we could have our discussions between 2000 and 2200 UTC on each of the three days we would be able to reflect on what happened at UDS and also not be over-booked.  I know that during the last virtual UDS I wound up over-booked in one time slot in three separate panels.  This would also help include Australian colleagues in participation too.

The Kubuntu folks are talking about meeting separately from the main UDS sessions using the audio-conferencing tech known as Mumble.  As Pasi has noted he does not wish to use Google+ and Google Hangouts that is one option we are ruling out.  We have to narrow down the options availble to us to see what we could use.  

In terms of order, I would like to go through only a single blueprint each night.  My proposed order is:

May 14th: Development & Milestone Participation
May 15th: Software
May 16th: Forward-Looking Issues

If we proceed that way we can first nail down our milestone participation which can then be communicated to the release team, then talk about our software issues, and then finally talk about forward-looking issues at the very end after all sorts of issues are likely to be raised at UDS.

An example of what the time zone conversion would look like in selected cities across the planet can be seen here:

Is this a way forward we would like to proceed with to ensure we have maximum participation?
