I just read through the blog post [1] about the upcoming Forum at the 
summit. That might help things, at least that's the intent so I'd hope 
it helps. We have had design summit sessions in the past where the nova 
team asks for feedback from operators/users but those were generally not 
well attended (we might get a handful of people). I had assumed the low 
attendance was mostly due to scheduling conflicts and people just had 
other places to be or more important sessions to attend, which is 
understandable when you're trying to pack it all in at the summit.
