The original subject "Signing the root with SHA-1 or SHA-2" seems to have
diverged, but after re-reading the thread, it seems there is fairly
strong consensus to run with SHA-1, exercising algorithm rollover later.

I'm proposing Sep 1st.

My rationale is that educational institutions will be started, or ready
to start shortly thereafter.  They are already dealing with new students,
and help desks will be able to give strong feedback on any problems.

Likewise, many/most businesses will have their staff back from holidays.

Finally, it's a Tuesday.  I've always found it best to roll out changes
on Tuesday, as it gives plenty of customer feedback time during the week.
Mondays are often consumed with catching up on any operational problems
over the weekend.  Tuesday is better.  02:00 UTC is my favorite, although
anytime after 00:00 UTC usually works OK.
