The new format will help a lot the communication between people developing OpenStack code and people putting in production that code  ;-)

Thanks Melvin!

    One of the challenges thus far on PWG input is it has often not been
    very grounded in reality. It often misses key details about what's hard,
    possible, or easy when it comes to the code and communities in question.
    The operator list feedback is typically by teams that are much more
    steeped in the day to days of running OpenStack, have sifted through
    chunks of the code, chatted more with community members. It very often
    starts from a place of much more common ground and understanding.
