Just one comment on this section before I forget again:
We want to get rid of #openstack-101 and begin using #openstack-dev
instead. The 101 channel isn't watched closely enough anymore and it makes
more sense to move onboarding activities (like in OpenStack Upstream
Institute) to a channel where there are people that can answer questions
rather than asking those to move to a new channel. For those concerned
about noise, OUI is run the weekend before the summit when most people are
traveling to the Summit anyway.
I would recommend sending folks to #openstack vs #openstack-dev by default.

> Hello Everyone :)
> It was wonderful to see and talk with so many of you last week! For those

> at all, I thought I would put forth a summary of our discussions which were
> mostly noted in the etherpad
> #Contributor Guide#
> - Walkthrough: We walked through every section of what exists and came up
> with a variety of improvements on what is there. Most of these items have
> been added to our StoryBoard project. This came up again Tuesday in docs
> sessions and I have added those items to StoryBoard as well.
> - Google Analytics: It was discussed we should do something about getting
> the contributor portal to appear higher in Google searches about
> onboarding. Not sure what all this entails. NEEDS AN OWNER IF ANYONE WANTS
> TO VOLUNTEER.
> #Mission Statement#
> We updated our mission statement! It now states:
> To provide a place for new contributors to come for information and
> advice. This group will also analyze and document successful contribution
> models while seeking out and providing information to new members of the
> #Weekly Meeting#
> We discussed beginning a weekly meeting- optimized for APAC/Europe and
> settled on 800 UTC in #openstack-meeting on Wednesdays. Proposed here.
> For now I added a section to our wiki for agenda organization. The two
> main items we want to cover on a weekly basis are new contributor patches
> in gerrit and if anything has come up on ask.openstack.org about
> contributors so those will be standing agenda items.
> #Forum Session#
> We discussed proposing some forum sessions in order to get more
> involvement from operators. Currently, our activities focus on development
> activities and we would like to diversify. When this SIG was first proposed
> we wanted to have two chairs- one to represent developers and one to
> represent operators. We will propose a session or two when the call for
> forum proposals go out (should be today).

> #Ongoing Onboarding Efforts#
> - GSOC: Unfortunately we didn't get accepted this year. We will try again
> next year.
> - Outreachy: Applications for the next round of interns are due March
> 22nd, 2018 . Decisions will be made by April and then internships run
> May to August.
> - WoO Mentoring: The format of mentoring is changing from 1x1 to cohorts
> focused on a single goal. If you are interested in helping out, please
> contact me! I NEED HELP :)
> - Contributor guide: Please see the above section.
> - OpenStack Upstream Institute: It will be run, as usual, the weekend
> before the Summit in Vancouver. Depending on how much progress is made on
> the contributor guide, we will make use of it as opposed to slides like
> previous renditions. There have also been a number of OpenStack Days
> requesting we run it there as well. More details of those to come.
> #Project Liaisons#
> The list is filling out nicely, but we still need more coverage. If you
> know someone from a project not listed that might be willing to help,
> please reach out to them and get them added to our list .
> I thiiiiiink that is just about everything. Hopefully I at least covered
