I'm OK with essentially skipping the Wednesday video meetings until we're at a point that we're ready to concentrate on Octavia as a project.
In previous video meetings there was a general sentiment that more could be accomplished (and faster) using video communications, while avoiding a lot of misunderstandings that crop up when people use text as a sole means of communication. (And there's science to back up this claim: http://www.nonverbalgroup.com/2011/08/how-much-of-communication-is-really-nonverbal/ http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/beyond-words/201109/is-nonverbal-communication-numbers-game ) Having said this, even if someone is recording all the video feeds that go into a video conference, this is difficult to document in any useful way for posterity or even for people who aren't able to make it to the discussion. When the Octavia project kicks into high gear once the Neutron LBaaS stuff is in a good state for Juno, we'll probably start with the high-bandwidth video conferences among those interested in contributing to the project and probably move to IRC or some other more document-able solution once the initial groundwork for the project is laid and high-bandwidth communication isn't as vital.
