I kept thinking about this since I saw the first slides of your
presentation in HK: how do we effectively transform the results of the
survey and the knowledge about users into decisions for the product?

I have the impression that talking to PTLs alone may not be sufficient
and we may want to get in touch with product managers from companies
shipping products based on OpenStack, asking their feedback and
commitment. PTLs have their opinions about priorities of features and
bug fixes, users have opinions about them  too and product managers are
probably the ones more likely capable of dedicating resources to them
anyway (PTLs in the end are generals with no army).

What do you think?
