Are you offering support to refactor resize/migrate, or are you offering 
support to work only on the hot-resize functionality?

I'm very much interested in refactoring the resize/migrate 
functionality, and would appreciate any help and insight you might have. 
Unfortunately, such a refactoring:

a) Must start in Kilo
b) Begins with un-crufting the simply horrible, inconsistent, and 
duplicative REST API and public behaviour of the resize and migrate actions

In any case, I'm happy to start the conversation about this going in 
about a month or so, or whenever Kilo blueprints open up. Until then, 
we're pretty much working on reviews for already-approved blueprints and 
bug fixing.
