We have had a good number of people express interest in this group.
Based on feedback it will not be a SIG, but an informal group
affiliated with the Kolla project.

Let's try to schedule a slot for some meetings. I've created a Doodle
poll [1] with hour-long slots between 12:00 UTC and 17:00 UTC, for
next week and the week after. I suggest we start with meetings every
two weeks while we build momentum, but we should probably drop to once
per month eventually.
