Great, agreed let's not enforce anything too hard atm. Would be great to 
have the ensemble team on #ubuntu-cloud (irc, and mailing list) though 
answering any potential questions. I'll mention both lists/rooms as 
available resources whenever I talk anywhere. When it will be needed, we 
can make that split more concrete in the future.

Can't believe I aimed at exactly the standup, perfect shot :) Great, I 
think a good plan would be as you mention to skip the standup on 
Wednesday 18:00UTC, convert that into a "mega-scrum" style meeting 
offering the wider community (me included) a higher level overview of 
ensemble development the past week, and TODO items of next week. I can 
help by committing to attend that meeting weekly, in order to be always 
updated, In case anything interesting has been accomplished, I can write 
about it and spread the news, in case something comes up that needs to 
be worked on, I can also try building buzz around it hopefully 
attracting a contributor. Sounds like a plan ? Do we start this Wed, or 
after UDS-O ?
