This looks fine for me, one thing that I missed in Atlanta was the
possibility to join
any of the WG sessions. By moving QA sessions to the 2nd part of the week,
QA team members could take turn attending the QA help room and join WG
conversations where needed.

The only concern I have here is that the topics to be discussed by the QA
and Infra
teams will be different and a shared room might not be ideal since we would
have two
ongoing discussions in the same room.
The three days would be a mix of QA sessions and hacking. Sharing a room
for the
hacking part is not an issue, but I would prefer to have a dedicated room
for at least 1.5 days.
