RR: Can you provide some pointers to the tooling / Workflow you suggesting?


 There is also the intent by 3 or 4 different groups to make it
more re-usable/re-consumable, including thoughts in making sure that we
can drive it from and have it consume heat.

We have IRC meeting channels for meetings. They are logged - and they
have the benefit that they do not require non-Open Source software to
access. If you have them in IRC, the team from OpenStack who is already
working on developer workflow around git can potentially participate.

I don't mean to be negative, but if you want to be a PaaS for OpenStack,
I would strongly consider not using G+ when we have IRC, and I would
strongly suggest engaging with the Infra projects that already know how
to do git-based workflow and action triggering.
