What Tim said :)

my ordering:

1) Preemptable Instances -- this would be huge and life changing I'd
   give up any other improvements to get this.

2) Deeper utilization of nested projects -- mostly we find ways to
   mange with out this but it would be great to have.

   A) to allow research groups (our internal fiscal/administrative
   divisions) to sub divide quota allocations accordinf to their own
   priorities on a self serve basis (provided proper RBAC configs)
   B) to answer show back questions more easily.  Currently with flat
   projects individual research groups have multiple openstack
   projects, by convention we mange to usually be able to aggregaet
   them in reporting, but deing able to show susage by a parent and
   all it 's childeren woudl be very useful

3) Quota improvements -- this is important but we've learned to deal
   with it

The background use cases are described in https://openstack-in-production.blogspot.fr/2016/04/resource-management-at-cern.html
:-          Quota management improvements
:o    Manual interventions are often required to sync the current usage with the OpenStack view
:o    Nested projects are now in Keystone but is limited support in other projects for the end user benefit, such as delegation of quota for sub-projects
:-          Nova pre-emptible instances  (https://review.openstack.org/#/c/104883/) to give spot market functionality
:o    We want to run our cloud at near 100% utilisation but this requires rapid ejection of lower priority VMs
:That having been said, I also fully support key priorities currently being worked on such as cells v2 and placement.

:Hey everyone,
:I am hoping to get a dialogue started to gain some insight around things Operators, Application Developers, and End Users would like to see happen in Pike. If you had a dedicated environment, dedicated team, and freedom to choose how you deployed, new features, older features, enhancements, etc, and were not required to deal with customer/client tickets, calls, and maintenances, could keep a good feedback loop between your team and the upstream community of any project, what would like to make happen or work on hoping the next release of OpenStack had/included/changed/enhanced/removed…?
