Kick off meeting for Project Loom

Project Loom has been up and running here for number of months doing 
some early exploration and prototyping of both delimited continuations 
and fibers. So far it's been a small scale effort with only a few Oracle 
committers involved. It's time to expand this, and to that end, we would 
like to organize a meeting to discuss this project and participation 
from those interested in getting involved and committing time and effort 
to help with the exploration and project goals.

A possible agenda for this initial meeting is:
- review where the project/prototype is current at
- go through the areas that the project plans to explore (at least the 
areas that we know about at this time)
- discuss expanding the project and areas where participates are willing 
to commit time/effort

If it works out then we can organize regular meetings, we can discuss 
that too!

The proposed meeting is 15.00 UTC on October 18, 2018. Send me mail in 
advance if you are planning to attend so that we can send the meeting 
logistics (probably zoom). The Project Loom proposal [1] and the JVMLS 
2018 presentation [2] should be reviewed in advanced.

We'll post minutes here for those that can't attend (or are just 
interested in following progress).
