Dear Chris,

first of all, it has been some time since I last said it and I think
it's worth repeating: thanks a *lot* for all your continued work on
writing and publishing the weekly blog!

I would like this deadline (which I appreciate it exists) in future to
please never be before Tuesday 6 UTC, because:

- sometimes I like to take my Sunday off (and I assume I'm not the only
  one here)
- sometimes Mondays are awful (and I assume I'm not the only one
- Tuesday 6 UTC in the morning means everybody has the full Monday (incl
  the time after midnight, so technically a bit of Tuesday) to work on
  reviewing this. And then I remembered Vagrant and now I wonder, no, I
  think that Tuesday 12 UTC is a better deadline, as it allows everyone
  to polish the weekly blog on Monday.

I don't think it matters much when we release the weekly blog, as long
as its somewhat close to the last week (which I think Tuesday noon UTC
qualifies, Mondays are a mess often anyway), predictable and gives
contributors enough time to contribute.
