== European train window and changes ==
This would affect Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday
* 1300-1400 CEST (1100-1200 UTC) - EU SWAT window (2 hours earlier)
* 1400-1500 CEST (1200-1300 UTC) - Break
* 1500-1700 CEST (1300-1500 UTC) - EU Train window
* 1700-1800 CEST (1500-1600 UTC) - Break
* 1800-1900 CEST (1600-1700 UTC) - PuppetSWAT (Tue/Thu only, no change)
Also, at the same time we'll be moving the Wednesday morning (SF time)
SWAT window on hour earlier to 9am Pacific. This is to alleviate a
contention with the weekly Scrum of Scrums meeting.
