*An update.*

It looks like the targeted date is now Sunday, August 8th with a time of
03:00 UTC for Oceania (11am Perth, 1pm AEST, 3pm NZ/Fiji, 5pm Tahiti).
A wiki has been started here

I don't think I'll be available that weekend, but is anyone willing to
coordinate the Oceania hour? Should be pretty light weight with map task
selection and coordination the main work required.
