We'll have a Google Hangout for the Cinder mid-cycle for virtual attendees and will post the links on IRC and the etherpad:
We'll make sure we ping mreidem and the Nova channel when we're discussing Cinder <-> Nova topics.

If we want a name for nova liaison to cinder, then I can put my name in, I've spent enough time in the cinder channel lately and have been reviewing more volume-related code in nova where I'm not *completely* lost, just *kind of* lost.
I would have been interested in attending the cinder meetup to represent nova except for that the email came out less than a week ago and the meetup is next week, which leaves little time to prepare for that kind of thing when you have family stuff to sort out for travel.
