And the fact that people forget the times are in UTC....

Honestly I'd be +1 for an openstack-meeting list where people posted
announces and minutes (should they wish). There are a subset of us that
would find that useful, and it would move the traffic off of -dev.

Honestly, I don't the QA meeting post to the main list because of
volume, but if we had a separate place for that, it would be cool.
