I tend to agree with Amrith here. If there are smaller projects/teams, 
then I'm not sure why they can't just have a meeting in their channel, 
unless it's an issue for the meeting bot?

But like we recently talked about the stable team meetings, we don't 
really need to be in a separate -alt room for those when we have the 
channel and anyone that cares about stable enough to be in the meeting 
is already in that channel, but sometimes the people in that channel 
forget about the meeting or which of the 20 alt rooms it's being held 
in, so they miss it (or Tony is biking down a volcano and we just don't 
have a meeting).

I'm only lurking in #openstack-meeting because of a rare ping, or 
mention, and I *MUST* be present to defend my honor, else I wouldn't be 
in there.
