[openstack-dev] [Cinder] Newton Midcycle Planning

Hey Cinder team (and those interested),

We've had a few informal conversations on the channel and in meetings,
but wanted to capture some things here and spread awareness.

I think it would be good to start planning for our Newton midcycle.
These have been incredibly productive in the past (at least in my
opinion) so I'd like to get it on the schedule so folks can start
planning for it.

For Mitaka we held our midcycle in the R-10 week. That seemed to work
out pretty well, but I also think it might be useful to hold it a little
earlier in the cycle to keep some momentum going and make sure things
stay pretty focused for the rest of the cycle.

For reference, here is the current release schedule for Newton:


R-10 puts us in the last week of July.

I would have a conflict R-16, R-15. We probably want to avoid US
Independence Day R-13, and milestone weeks R-18 and R12.

So potential weeks look like:

* R-17
* R-14
* R-11
* R-10
* R-9

Nova is in the process of figuring out their date. If we have that, it
would be good to try to avoid an overlap there. Our linked midcycle
session worked out well, but probably better if they don't conflict.

We also need to work out locations. Anyone able and willing to host,
just let me know. We need a facility with wifi, able to hold ~30-40
people, wifi, close to an airport. And wifi.

At some point I still think it would be nice for our international folks
to be able to do a non-US midcycle, but I'm fine if we end up back in Ft
Collins our somewhere similar.
