In my opinion, IRC is the best place to run meetings in OpenStack
community, however we need to acknowledge that not everyone agrees and some
functional teams or sub-teams prefer some other tools, including

What remains critical to me is:
- wherever you run the meeting, make it publicly reachable, accessible,
- if you run the meeting outside of IRC, take and share notes on public

In general: decisions shouldn't not be taken during meetings, but rather on
Gerrit or Mailing-lists. Otherwise you're fragmenting the community between
those who can attend the meeting and those who can't.

My 2 cents,
