Greetings fellow ironic humanoids!

As many have known, I've been largely attempting to drive Boot from
Volume functionality in ironic over the past two years.  Largely, in a
slow incremental approach, which is in part due to how I perceived it
to best fit into the existing priorities when the discussions started.

During PTG there was quite the interest by multiple people to become
involved and attempt to further Boot from Volume forward this cycle. I
would like to move to having a weekly meeting with the focus of
integrating this functionality into ironic, much like we did with the
tighter neutron integration.

I have two reasons for proposing a new meeting:

* Detailed technical status updates and planning/co-ordination would
need to take place. This would functionally be noise to a large number
of contributors in the ironic community.

* Many of these details would need need to be worked out prior to the
first part of the existing ironic meeting for the weekly status
update. The update being a summary of the status of each sub team.

With that having been said, I'm curious if we could re-use the
ironic-neutron meeting time slot [0] for this effort.  That meeting
was cancelled just after the first of this year [1].  In it's place I
think we should have a general purpose integration meeting, that could
be used as a standing meeting, specifically reserved at this time for
Boot from Volume work, but could be also by any integration effort
that needs time to sync-up in advance of the existing meeting.
