[Openstack-operators] What would you like in Pike?

Hi all,

we would also like to see both of the features mentioned by Tim getting a clear path into Pike. We are daily struggling with the same problems CERN has (albeit at a much smaller scale), and getting these two things would greatly simplify our day-to-day life and ability to use OpenStack to do compute-on-demand.

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…?
