[llvm-dev] Should we have a "GPU working group"?

We nowadays have various "working groups" that meet regularly to discuss 
technical topics (incl. RISC-V, MLIR, OpenMP, Alias Analysis, ML, Flang, 
It's a reasonably nice way for people to connect and present ideas, get 
feedback, etc. in an interactive environment.
While the OpenMP meeting has a strong emphasis on offloading, we do not 
meet to discuss "generic GPU" topics as a community.

This email is to determine if people would be interested in meeting once 
every N weeks (initially we could say 2) to coordinate efforts in this 
space, e.g., development of GPU-specific optimizations, organization of 
driver and backend code, dealing with issues like convergent functions, ...

I CC'ed a bunch of people that might want to join such a meeting but 
certainly this is something everyone would be invited to and I hope 
people forward this to parties that might not read llvm-dev.

Looking forward to hear what people think :)
