Coordination and time zones

Item posted by Sylvain Beucler <Beuc> on Fri 20 Nov 2009 11:29:57 PM UTC.

We just experimented with the nice pytz/python-tz library, to display the local time in all time zones:

What do you think? Do you know about tools that would help people with setting up a meeting time when working from different countries? Probably a good thing to add to Savannah :)


possible bug (posted by Aurélien DESBRIÈRES, Fri 12 Feb 2010 07:06:30 PM UTC)

If the people which use that live in France, install a debian version talking they are in alaska and puting the hour to 1 hour late, you system stay one hour late, or maybe it just comes from the fact that here there is one hour more during winter.

Setup a meet time to work from diff countries (posted by Jacques Champagne, Mon 23 Nov 2009 12:17:18 AM UTC)


Since you ask for and if I'm allowed to post here.

I'm currently unaware of meeting scheduler that exist.

But I see one time meeting scheduler, that would probably
be an interface for inside group member and an other one
for general connected public, for read-only.

Interface can be like a table using graphics for hours
available in a specified date. Date are selectable
using a simple month table.

Avalaible hours can be:
In x axis it show a range of n hours.
In y axis it show a list of members name and

For graphics;
- using a one pixel image that are set
a CSS height of 100% of a cell table height
and where the width is given by
available time for a member of the list

- a row of time range might be set by
the following html sample, for a day;

<TD><IMG src="gray.png" width="36%"/>
<IMG src="green.png" width="24%"/>
<IMG src="gray.png" width="36%"/>

This would show gray bars for unavailable times
and green bar for time available in a day or
a ranges of hours.

Member submit per availabilities for a range of
hours for date(s), using an input webform.

Meeting type can be;
local city site, forum, irc, others.

There might also have a tool to query for a
range of dates, for a group or a member.

Show hours in UTC or tranlated to
member/user local time?

Hope I have understand the question
and that it help.
