If we are going to call these onboarding rooms, I think it's important
that the teams doing these get a full 90 minutes and actually dive deep
into something concrete that people could contribute to.

Splitting a 90 minute slot over 5 teams to have each give a lightning
talk that they exist isn't really onboarding. And doesn't really take
advantage of the format of having people there in the room.

Something like that almost seems better done by recording / producing 60
second video spots with PTLs about what each group does, and getting
those run either at the venue or part of collateral on openstack.org.
