[Openstack-operators] Fwd: OPs Midcycle location discussion.

For us NZ (and maybe Aus) folk to attend, getting to Europe is (literally)
twice the distance of US, but Asia is about the same (language aside). I
find the Summit really valuable in that a large and diverse group get
together and the discussion is live, and in the same time zone - I'd be sad
to lose that focus if we split the mid cycle, but if it was regional I'd be
more likely to justify the cost of getting there. A set of air fares and
accommodation for the Summit every 6 months is hard enough to fund,
doubling it isn't easy.
Maybe it would be good to re-state the purpose/goal of the mid cycle and
see which option matches that better?
