I'm a bit skeptical.

We have a history of creating a lot of groups and structures. This was 
very helpful in the early years to cope with the crazy growth of 
openstack and to capture all the energy sent toward the project. But 
today we really have too many groups, meetings, channels compared to the 
number of active people. We still have thousands of contributors, and 
yet we feel spread thin. So I'm skeptical of creating new groups and/or 
meetings (at least not without eliminating a number of other 
groups/meetings as a result).

Creation of a Kolla SIG would IMHO duplicate "Kolla" groups, and create 
a bit of confusion and uncertainty as to what is handled by the Kolla 
SIG vs. what is handled by the Kolla project team.

I'd rather encourage the Kolla project team to directly engage with its 
users by holding "Ops feedback" sessions and other activities. Basically 
I'm not sure what the Kolla SIG would do that the Kolla project team 
cannot currently do...
