Well I have an item on the Neutron team meeting for next week: 
I would enjoy having your presence there and hope you join in on the 
discussion, Russell.

Yes, the surprising thing for me is this is the feeling within the rest 
of the OpenStack community and seems to be not acknowledged in anyway so 
far in my journeys within Neutron. Thank you for stating this so 
clearly, Russell. I hope people are able to hear you when you say it.

It was actually for this reason that I decided to do what I am doing, to 
my best ability to do it. Others are prepared to deprecate Neutron now 
and I needed to demonstrate to myself that I did everything I could to 
address the situation before I voiced my opinion.

So we shall see what comes of it.

Actually symbols are very important and carry subtle messages that the 
unconcious part of the brain interprets but may not push to 

Logos are powerful for a reason, and when I talk to you, Russell, I 
appreciate being able to look at you and hear you without a logo 
creating interference with my communication with you.

That is a shame. It would be wonderful if you could attend. But you are 
the only one who can decide and I respect your opinion.

I wish that were so. I have witnessed nothing in my time in the Neutron 
design summit sessions or in the IRC channel to indicate they aren't.

Funny this is such a big pain point.

Thanks for weighing in, I do hope to keep the conversation going.
