It's fine for me as it's in the middle of the day anyway. The problem
with DST is that it starts differently in  different countries (eg. it
starts and ends earlier in the Europe than in the US). Not to mention
Australia where DST works in the other direction :-).

Anyway we can try to pick other timing which will be fit better to
everybody. Still I think using UTC is best fit for us as otherwise it
will move even more than for one hour for some team members...
