Hello Ops!

As a followup to this, the Ops Meetup Team has set up a brainstorming
etherpad to discuss possible forum sessions for Sydney.


This works the same as our Ops Mid-Cycle meetups. Post your session
ideas, comment on other listed proposals, and +1 the ones you are
interested in seeing included. As always, please share your ideas even
if you will be unable to attend the Sydney Summit.
