[openstack-dev] [Neutron][LBaaS] Mini-summit Interest?

Hi Edgar,

I'm neutral to the suggestion of mini summit at this point.
Why do you think it will exclude developers?
If we keep it 1-3 days prior to OS Summit in Atlanta (e.g. in the same
city) that would allow anyone who joins OS Summit to save on extra
OS Summit itself is too distractive to have really productive discussions,
unless your missing the sessions and spend time discussing.
For instance design sessions basically only good for declaration of
intents, but not for real discussion of a complex topic at meaningful
detail level.

What would be your suggestions to make this more inclusive?
I think the time and place is the key here - hence Atlanta and few days
prior OS summit.
