This is an excellent idea, let's split the meetings into:

1) Mentoring - mentoring new CI team members and operators, help them
understand infra tools and processes. Anita can continue her fantastic work

2) Working Group - working meeting for documentation, reviewing patches for
relevant work, and improving the consumability of infra CI components. I
will be happy to chair these meetings initially. I am sure I can get help
with these meetings for the other time zones also.

With this approach we can also continue to use the new meeting times voted
on by the group, and each is focused on targeting a specific group with
very different needs.

Thanks Stefano!
