Good point - I was going to bring up some operator aspects as well.

There have been some discussion within the operators meetup planning around
trying to bring that operator-driven event closer in, or colocated, with the
PTG. This is both for logistics planning as well as working on getting that
feedback loop between operators and development closer.

We may want to consider some of those needs and how we might make the ops
midcycle a more visible and potentially bigger event.
