My hope was that it would be "the summit without the noise". Sounds like
it will be "the summit without the noise, or the organization".

I'd really like to see time boxes for most if not all of it, even if many
of the boxes are just half a day of "work time" which means "we want to
work on stuff together without the overhead of less involved participants."

The two days of cross project is awesome. But there are also big
single-project initiatives that have cross-project interest anyway.

For instance, the movement of the scheduler out of Nova is most definitely
a Nova session, but it has ramifications for oslo, performance, neutron,
cinder, architecture, API-WG, etc.  etc. If we don't know when Nova is
going to discuss it, how can we be there to influence that discussion?
