I could be way off base here, but fedora is a project published by a US
organization (speaking of the fedora foundation, not red hat). Aren't
most folks in Europe used to the fact that if *anything* is happening in
the US on a given day, its going to be late evening at best in their
time zone? Seems like a non-issue to me.
