That is probably true in the strict sense (I wonder if "most" devs do,
I doubt it), but many operators do.  My organization is doubling the
number of ops people we're sending (to 2 :) ) while marketing and
management is constant at zero.

It would be interesting to try and capture real numbers on this, maybe
through the user survey?  Or less formally attendance at the
Ops-meetup summit (http://junodesignsummit.sched.org/type/ops+meetup)
sessions, since those are on the "design" schedule we'll probably
ditch most of the marketeers.

The Operators Meet-up (or what ever it was called) in San Jose got a
fair number of operators on fairly short notice with zero marketing
people, so I think these sorts of sessions are valuable and attract
enough experienced real world ops people to be useful.

Of course no point in time event like a summit or meet up is a
substitute for ongoing feed back processes, but the are important
especially in building new processes.

As an operator I've never really felt an us against them friction with
dev's in OpenStack.  People have bad days on both sides but that's
just people.  There is a divide are we tend to look at things in
different ways and on different time scales but I also see a real
desire and practical work being done to bridge those differences.  I
don't get it when people try and go to war over issue the both sides
(from where I sit) seem to genuinely be working to resolve in an open
collaborative way.
