We're bursting at the seams already with channels, and reaching the
bounds of what can be logged. Does each SIG need its own channel? In
this particular case, there are already a few related channels that
could be reused, but in other cases do we want to use #openstack or

We're also going through a transition of encouraging teams to *not*
meet, but to do work asynchronously using mailing lists. So you could
skip the scheduling stuff and just starting having conversations on this
list. It's up to the participants, of course.
