noskcaj: Good on timing
gridcube: Not good on timing
Elfy: Earlier would be better
There is wiggle room available. This is negotiable.
The most important of the three blueprints hasn't been accepted so far for UDS-1305. That would be the "Development & Milestone Participation" blueprint in this instance. This can still change and the calendar on summit.ubuntu.com has yet to be filled in.
Hammering out a time first for the three days will work. My schedule is mostly open.
Once we get a time, we can figure out a mode for meeting. Again, the Kubuntu folks are looking scheduling something with Mumble this time around. TalkShoe, Skype conference calls, SIP conference call room, etc. are all possibilities.
As for alignment with UDS, release milestone participation is the only thing that really needs to line up with it so we can convey decisions to the release team quickly. The rest can a float a little, if necessary.
The idea in the end is to get things discussed quickly and effectively in a way more people can participate in while keeping friction low if possible.

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.

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.
