Re: Saturday as start day

Thanks to everyone for the feedback. Based on the feedback, the IESG is going 
to go ahead with this change starting with IETF 100. We will also incorporate 
the comments received about the length of the meeting week into ongoing IESG 
discussions about different ways of managing the agenda time overall.

Hi all,

Based on a suggestion from Paul Hoffman, the IESG believes it would be 
beneficial to denote the official start of IETF meetings to be on Saturday 
rather than Sunday, starting with IETF 100. We believe this would be sensible 
given that events such as the hackathon and code sprint start on Saturday, 
and may make it easier for some participants to get travel approval to attend 
those events. This change would be reflected in the dates posted on the IETF 
web site and sent out in email announcements. We are not proposing any 
changes in terms of the scheduling of any meeting-related events, the full 
availability of the meeting network starting on Sunday, the opening of 
on-site registration, or the meeting fee.

If you have feedback about this change, please send it to 
ietf(_at_)ietf(_dot_)org <mailto:ietf(_at_)ietf(_dot_)org>, or exceptionally 
to iesg(_at_)ietf(_dot_)org <mailto:iesg(_at_)ietf(_dot_)org>, by July 5,
