Subject: [Openstack-operators] [publicClouds-wg] Public Cloud Working Group

So after input from a variety of sources over the last few weeks, I'd very much like to try and put together a public cloud working group, with the very high level goal of representing the interests of the public cloud provider community around the globe.

I'd like to propose that, in line with the new process for creation of working groups, we set up some initial IRC meetings for all interested parties. The goals for these initial meetings would be :

1. Define the overall scope and mission statement for the working group
2. Set out the constituency for the group - communication methods, definitions of public clouds, meeting schedules, chairs etc.
3. Identify areas of interest - eg. technical issues, collaboration opportunities

Before I go ahead and schedule first meetings, I'd very much like to gather input from the community on interested parties, and if this seems like a reasonable first step forward. My thought initially was to schedule a first meeting on #openstack-operators and then decide on best timings, locations and communication methods from there, but again I'd welcome input.

At this point it would seem to me that one of the key metrics for this working group to be successful is participation as widely as possible within the public cloud provider community, currently approximately 21 companies globally according to https://www.openstack.org/marketplace/public-clouds/. If we could get representation from all of those companies in any potential working group, then that would clearly be the best outcome, although that may be optimistic ! As has become clear at recent Ops events, it may be that not all of those companies are represented on these lists, so I'd welcome any input on the best way to reach out to those folks.
