I think you can do that from the Kolla project team. You can call it the 
Kolla users club and create a number of events around it (virtual or 
face-to-face). My point is that you do not need a specific governance 
structure to do this.

No, I was just suggesting finding a catchy name for those outreach 
activities, one that encourages users to reach out, and make it less 
intimidating than joining the IRC meeting for a project team.
