Daylight savings time changes

Daylight savings time (DST) changes went into effect in North America
(NA) today, but do not do so for Europe until March 27th.

As currently scheduled, the next SG16 telecon, on March 23rd, would take
place an hour later than our last one for NA residents and at the same
time for European residents. The following one, on April 13th, would be
an hour later for everyone.

At some point in the past, we had decided to schedule relative to UTC
year round. There have recently been opinions expressed that scheduling
for a consistent time relative to the meeting host's local timezone
(EST5EDT4 in our case) would be preferred. I would like to switch to the
latter starting with our next meeting. I am personally motivated by
meeting at the earlier time and I imagine this would be preferred for
attendees from CET as well (the meeting start time would be 7:30pm
instead of 8:30pm local time).

Please complete the following Doodle poll to express your preferences
for the next two meetings. I'll interpret choices expressed for the
April 13th date as a time of day preference for future meetings as well.
