Just one comment on this section before I forget again: #IRC Channels# We want to get rid of #openstack-101 and begin using #openstack-dev instead. The 101 channel isn't watched closely enough anymore and it makes more sense to move onboarding activities (like in OpenStack Upstream Institute) to a channel where there are people that can answer questions rather than asking those to move to a new channel. For those concerned about noise, OUI is run the weekend before the summit when most people are traveling to the Summit anyway.
I would recommend sending folks to #openstack vs #openstack-dev by default.
