Hi everyone,

At the Mitaka design summit in Tokyo we had some corridor discussions about
doing a mid-cycle meetup for the purpose of continuing some design
discussions and doing some specific sprint work.

I'd like indications of who would like to attend and what
locations/dates/topics/sprints would be of interest to you.

For guidance/background I've put some notes together below:

We have contributors, deployers and downstream consumers across the globe
so picking a venue is difficult. Rackspace have facilities in the UK
(Hayes, West London) and in the US (San Antonio) and are happy for us to
make use of them.

Most of the mid-cycles for upstream OpenStack projects are being held in
January. The Operators mid-cycle is on February 15-16.

As I feel that it's important that we're all as involved as possible in
these events, I would suggest that we schedule ours after the Operators

It strikes me that it may be useful to do our mid-cycle immediately after
the Ops mid-cycle, and do it in the UK. This may help to optimise travel
for many of us.

The format of the summit is really for us to choose, but typically they're
formatted along the lines of something like this:

Day 1: Big group discussions similar in format to sessions at the design

Day 2: Collaborative code reviews, usually performed on a projector, where
the goal is to merge things that day (if a review needs more than a single
iteration, we skip it. If a review needs small revisions, we do them on the

Day 3: Small group / pair programming.

Some topics/sprints that come to mind that we could explore/do are:
 - Install Guide Documentation Improvement [1]
 - Development Documentation Improvement (best practises, testing, how to
develop a new role, etc)
 - Upgrade Framework [2]
 - Multi-OS Support [3]
