Hi everyone,

The session suggestion website for the Juno Design Summit (which will
happen at the OpenStack Summit in Atlanta) is now open at:

Long version:

The "Juno Design Summit" is a specific event part of the overall
"OpenStack Summit" in Atlanta. It is different from classic tracks in
a number of ways.

* It starts on Tuesday morning and ends on Friday evening.

* There are *no formal presentations or speakers*. The sessions at the
design summit are open discussions between contributors on a specific
development topic for the upcoming development cycle, generally
moderated by the PTL or the person who proposed the session. While it is
possible to prepare a few slides to introduce the current status and
kick-off the discussion, these should never be formal
speaker-to-audience presentations. If that's what you're after, the
presentations in the other tracks of the OpenStack Summit are for you.

* There is no community voting on the content. The Juno Design Summit is
split into multiple topics (one for each official OpenStack Program),
and the elected program PTL will be ultimately responsible for selecting
the content he deems important for the upcoming cycle. If you want to be
PTL in place of the PTL, we'll be holding elections for that in the
coming weeks :)

With all this in mind, please feel free to suggest topics of discussion
for this event. The website to do this is open at:


You'll need to go through Launchpad SSO to log on that site (same auth
we use for review.openstack.org and all our core development
infrastructure). If you're lost, try the Help link at the bottom of the
page. If all else fails, send me an email.

Please take extra care when selecting the topic your suggestion belongs
in. You can see the complete list of topics at:


We have two *new* categories this time around:

"Cross-project workshops"
Those will be used to discuss topics which affect all OpenStack
projects, and therefore increase convergence and collaboration across
program barriers.

"Other projects"
Those will let unofficial, OpenStack-related, open source projects to
have a design discussion within the Design Summit area. We'll limit this
to one session per project to give room to as many projects as possible.

You have until *April 20* to suggest sessions. Proposed session topics
will be reviewed by PTLs afterwards, potentially merged with other
suggestions before being scheduled.

You can also comment on proposed sessions to suggest scheduling
constraints or sessions it could be merged with.
