Actually those projects would get pod space for the rest of the week, so
they should stay! Also some of them might have graduated by then :)

I think those teams work on different issues. Some issues require a lot
of communication and input because they are cross-project problems that
those teams are tasked with solving -- in which case that belongs to the
cross-project day. Other issues are more implementation details and
require mostly the team members but not so much external input -- those
belong to the specific slots or the "contributors meetup". Obviously
some things will be a bit borderline and we'll have to pick one or the
other based on available slots.
