Thanks for the kind words.  It really is a group effort.  Even in the
face of an incredibly controversial topic, we can't be afraid to ask
hard questions.  It takes a lot of maturity and focus to work through
the answers toward some sort of consensus without it turning into, as
Vish said, arguments and flame wars.

Nova (and OpenStack overall) is made up of a pretty incredible group
of people.
