Network Team meetings

Regular meetings

Primary meeting Monday 1700 UTC Monday 7:00pm CEST Monday 1:00pm EDT Monday 10:00am PDT
Patch party! Tuesday 2300 UTC Wednesday 1:00am CEST Tuesday 7:00pm EDT Tuesday 4:00pm PDT

(The UTC times are canonical; the other times are derived from sleep-deprived developers doing simple arithmetic in their heads.)

If you want to participate, try to show up to one of these. Either one should be fine, though the primary meeting will be more attended. The two meeting times are roughly 12 hours apart in the hopes that one will be convenient for your time zone.

Also note that these meeting times are not permanent. We sometimes need to reconfigure them from time to time as developers join, as people's schedules change, and as the global daylight savings slouches across the face of the earth. See the tor-dev mailing list for updates.

Hackfest style meetings

And here are some upcoming meeting times and topics. (Note that if you are listed as a must-have attendee, it means that we should probably reschedule if it turns out you can't make it.)

On noting conflicts

  • Feel free to note a conflict if you think that the meeting could go on without you; but if you do, make sure you say so.
  • If you are noting a conflict, please include a big range of times when you COULD make it.

General availability

If you're okay with the world knowing when you're around, you can stick schedule info here. This isn't a commitment; it's meant to be an aid to helping others plan meeting times you can attend.
