Count me in as wanting to be part of the mid-cycle. I live in San 
Antonio but I think we should strongly consider having the meetup in the 
UK. It seems most of our deployers live in the UK and it'd be nice to 
get people involved whom may not have been able to attend the summit. 
While I'll need to get travel approval if we decide to hold the event in 
the UK, during the mid-cycle I'd like to focus on working on the 
"Upgrade Framework" and "multi-OS". Additionally, if we have time, I'd 
like to see if people are interested in bringing new services online and 
work with folks regarding the implementation details and how to compose 
new roles.
