[feature] Meeting Times

Bug Description

Feature Idea:

Allow users ( perhaps by host mask? ) to link their LP to the Bot. When the User requests the next meeting time, it will be factored into their timezone.

This probably could be done faster with guessing with IPs, but This is cool.

This may also depend on a Meeting Time feature.

After we link LP, we should be able to do other Voodoo as well. I see cool things coming out of this.

I think this would be an awesome feature.

Getting it to work and convert into a users local time would be good, but should be added later - until then it should pull the meeting date off the wiki (maybe) and give the time in UTC.

Also - allow users to ask via Voiced or Non-Voiced status (at least for the BT channel)

In revision 39: http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~votebot-dev/votebot/trunk/revision/39, the .btmeeting command was added. This command fetches the date and time of the next meeting from the wiki page. I will continue working on this feature to try and get it to display the date/time in the locale time zone of the user who issued the command.

Getting this to work would require the bot to be able to grab a users IP
address, and since some of us (Ok..most) have the unaffiliated or the
Ubuntu member mask, this task would seem almost impossible. I think
this feature request as awesome as it sounds, should be set as Wont Fix
because of the above statements. Sorry Ubuntu Beginner Team, it was a
great idea, just not feasable/possible.

There are actually two other ways that this feature could be implemented. The first way would be make the user specify what time zone they are in when they call the .btmeeting command. VoteBot would then take care of converting the time to their time zone. The second way is more difficult. It would involve keeping a database of which hosts are associated with which Launchpad accounts. I would then need to figure out how to interact with the Launchpad API in perl (most of the documentation explains how to do this in perl). Finally, when I get the time zone, I would then have to convert the meeting date and time to the user's local time zone.
