As last time (and likely thoughout the whole daylight saving time), 
17:00 UTC will very likely not work for me.

Therefore, preliminary comments/votes interspersed:

0, same rationale as the last time.

-1, same rationale as the list time.

-1, I don't consider this plan to be useful and do not support it.

-1, I don't see any need for adding such a guideline. Besides the fact 
that's often hardly possible to review man-pages and that Debian 
man-pages are of very varying quality, this is a packaging detail which 
I prefer to be left to discretion of each packager.
