MetaBrainz Meeting

Revision as of 17:18, 31 March 2014 by Bitmap (talk | contribs) (add CST/CDT, update dates)

Every Monday, developers in the MusicBrainz community gather on the #musicbrainz-devel irc channel to discuss whatever issues need discussing. On occasion the meeting is moved to a different day, but it is never moved to a different time slot; it always takes place at "Regular Meeting Time".

Regular Meeting Time

Regular Meeting Time is the time at which most irc meetings are scheduled, most importantly the weekly dev chat. Because meetings are attended by people from many countries all over the world, "Regular Meeting Time" is different for each of the attendees when expressed in local time.

The meeting time is anchored to 21:00 in mainland Europe.

Europe switches to daylight savings time (CEST) on the last Sunday in March, and switches back to CET on the last Sunday of October. If you are in a country or state which observes DST on different dates, or which doesn't observe DST at all you will have take this into account. Please consult the list below for details for your time zone.
