In this case, I see the mentoring to be more like “office hours”, which can be done by ci operators & other volunteers spread across time zones. I think this is a great idea.

I'd like to discuss this further: the stated objectives of the meetings
are very wide and may allow for more than one slot per week. In
particular I'm seeing the two below as good candidates for 'meet as many
times as possible':

   *  to provide a forum for the curious and for OpenStack programs who
are not yet in this space but may be in the future
   * to encourage questions from third party folks and support the
sourcing of answers

As I mentioned above, probably one way to do this is to make some slots
more focused on engaging newcomers and answering questions, more like
serendipitous mentoring sessions with the less involved, while another
slot could be dedicated to more focused and long term efforts, with more
committed people?

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 here.

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!
