[openstack-dev] Meeting time congestion

I think that in case of adding additional meeting rooms, we'll need to
avoid disparity between them in names. For example, currently we have a lot
of folks in #os-meeting and not so many in #os-meeting-alt, if we'll have
#os-meeting-alt-2 then we'll have even less folks there and it'll be the
same like making meeting in project channel.

So, probably it'll be better to have meeting rooms named
#openstack-meeting-1(or -a?) and etc. and round robin meetings between this
