We do not provide a specific track at the "Design Summit" for HA (or for
hot upgrades for the matter) but we have space for "cross-project
workshops" in which HA topics would be discussed. I suspect what you
mean here is that the one of two sessions that the current setup allows
are far from enough to tackle that topic efficiently ?

IMHO there is dedicated space -- just not enough of it. It's one of the
issues with the current Design Summit setup -- just not enough time and
space to tackle everything in one week. With the new event format I
expect we'll be able to free up more time to discuss such horizontal
issues, but as far as Barcelona goes (where we have less space and less
time than in Austin), I'd encourage you to still propose cross-project
workshops (and engage on the Ops side of the Design Summit to get
feedback from there as well).
