Please don't. This means anyone who wants to be around in case an
important topic comes up in your meeting has to leave themselves
subscribed to an additional channel, and increases the chances your
meetings will conflict time-wise with others. Using the official
meeting channels increases the ability of the community at large to
be more involved in those discussions.

The new project requirements[1] only say "The project has regular
meetings on IRC and those meetings are logged" but it seems like an
oversight to me that it doesn't say they should happen in official
meeting channels (at least once the project's application has been
accepted). The structure reform resolution[2] did mention "use
#openstack-meeting channels for their team meetings" so I think it's
the implied intent there, at least. I've proposed a governance
change[3] in hopes of making this clear for others in the future,
and updated our Meetings wiki article[4] with an additional sentence
in the preamble describing the benefits and linking to related
