Monday and Tuesday are in general not desirable since that is
typically when Petr Tag and Branch for rc/beta etc...
Thursday/Friday would be better in that regards

Monday is particularly not desirable when the outage is announce over
the week-end... You want to leave a _least_ a business day for the
announce to get a chance to be picked-up.
