Maybe this wasn't clear, but I was trying to define the short time
period as 12 hours. Is that the answer you're looking for?

I'm a little confused by the phrasing, and I'm reading it as "a meeting
every 3 months" and "a meeting every 6 months" because "3 monthly
meetings" would mean three meetings every month.
I agree with you that postmortem reviews are important and valuable. At
the very beginning, I'd suggest even communication than this because of
the importance of getting things started right -- every council meeting
for the first three months would not be too much.
