Apologies, I am not nearly half way through writing up all that came
out of the summit. A few nasty bugs in production kept me occupied
last week, but I have got out of that now / fixed them, I hope.

In the design summit session we said any group of people can
self-organise and start proposing patches as "ready to merge" by that
sub team, in here:

We agreed that if there were too many sub teams, we would ask the
teams to join together. And I hope some subteams find each other on
that etherpad, and organically decide its best to join forces.

While we have established patterns of successful sub team
collaborations (IRC meetings, bug tags, etc), feel free to do whatever
works, assuming its aligned with the Open nature of our community
(i.e. I expect code reviews to be done in gerrit, not using some
internal communication channel. Even if you review face to face, I
would appreciate you writing up the outcome in gerrit).

In summary, yes please, sounds good.

I would reach out to Dan, and the other folks who were active in those
meetings, to see how it best makes sense to collaborate. Let me know
if I can help connect you folks, but IRC usually works.
