I’m kind of torn on this because who wants more meetings and I do like the idea of a larger umbrella group of “Contributer/Community/Operator Experience”. That said I think there’s a need for smaller more focused groups who do the work and then maybe 1-2 people attend the larger group and give their input and return to the group with information. 

Just some early morning thoughts,
