Hi everyone,

Piet recently reached out to me to explain that he won't be able to
continue in his role as OpenStack UX team's PTL. Since he created the
team and spent a lot of time coordinating its activities, that raises
the question of the future of the OpenStack UX team.

The situation was discussed at the TC meeting yesterday[1] and the
general feeling was that there was a lot of value in a separate team
centralizing things like Persona definition and facilitating
properly-conducted UX surveys. That said, if nobody is able to dedicate
the time that effort needs, we could also disband the centralized team
and encourage every project to adopt the tools and techniques that were
built and introduced by the UX team in the past years.

So... What are your thoughts on those options ? Do we have a volunteer
(or more than one) to take over UX PTLship ?
