I think there's a big difference between snapshots deadlines and
elections deadlines. A GNOME release/snapshot can be pushed back if it's
not ready (for any reason), but the elections can not be pushed back.
The GNOME Foundation has to follow some rules, and so we have to be
strict for this kind of things. This is why deadlines are defined
accurately. The definition you gave is not accurate. I agree that UTC
may not be the best choice, but it's too late to change that.

A specific time is specified on and it was specified in
the first reminder
tml). Considering that the official rules are those on, I don't think we should change the deadline
