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.
