What if someone in your office is working on OpenStack too, and you meet in the hallway and discuss something technical? Does that violate the 4 Opens?

I do not believe anyone is willing to exclude contributors at any
stage. If such (mis)understanding is there, it needs to be discussed
why it is there and how to remediate it since it's not good for the
community and is diverting the focus.
Let's have 5-10 mins in today's weekly meeting where we get the facts
together behind the issue and try to bring it to a conclusion.

OR have a detailed discussion on #openstack-kolla
