OK. Now that representatives of all 3 bids have expressed agreement with this
timeline, let's go ahead and schedule these meetings. How about January 25th
(Sunday) at 2100 UTC, followed by February 16th (US-holiday Monday) at 2100
UTC, followed by March 1st (Sunday) at 2100 UTC? This avoids conflicting with
the US/Venezuelan workday as much as possible, while still being at a
reasonable time of day for Europeans. For February I would suggest the 14th or
15th, except there's a chance I won't be free those days, hence my suggestion
of the 16th.

Once Ari and Hector and one or two European DebConf people have confirmed, then
an announcement can go out and the wiki page can be updated.
