I would expect the GSoC students to typically be available during their

The mentors that are not in UTC+2 are Ian with UTC-8 (?) and Luis with

The problems of having a non-flat world.

So, if we wanted everyone to attend at the same time, that would be
inconvenient for different folks, depending on the time selected.

I do not know whether Ian and Luis plan to regularely attend the meetings
(you're very welcome to, of course!), or rather be consulted on demand?

It would be possible to hold separate meetings for the different GSoC
students (and thus relax the timezone spans), but that would potentially
require more effort (time) on the mentors' side (for repeatedly
discussing general issues, not specific to one GSoC project).

I propose the following scheme: effective now, GSoC students send a
weekly report at the end of each week (so, on Friday, or on the weekend
-- as an exception at the very latest one hour before the following
regular IRC meeting), and regular IRC meetings are held each Monday,
during the GSoC students' day-time, that is, between 7 UTC and 12 UTC
(translating to 9 UTC+2 and 14 UTC+2, and 15 UTC+8 and 20 UTC+8).
Unfortunately, this probably will be inconvenient for Ian and Luis, so I
do not expect you to attend regularely, but rather be consulted on
demand.  More specifically, would Monday, 8 UTC (10 UTC+2, 16 UTC+8) work
for everyone, typically?  ("Everyone" here means the GSoC students, GSoC
mentors, and everyone else who is interested.)

IRC should be easy for me to be available at. The weekly status would also help me keep informed about progress and any questions i may be able to answer.

The meeting times may be a problem for me, but i think we have other forms of communication that may be quite effective as well.
