Yes, I do think it would be useful to discuss this in person.  However,
I don't think that was the most important feedback from the TC meeting.

The biggest concern seemed to be that we weren't sure whether Climate
makes sense as an independent project or not.  We think it may make more
sense to integrate what Climate does today into Nova directly.  More
generally, we think reservations of resources may best belong in the
APIs responsible for managing those resources, similar to how quota
management for resources lives in the resource APIs.

There is some expectation that this type of functionality will extend
beyond Nova, but for that we could look at creating a shared library of
code to ease implementing this sort of thing in each API that needs it.
