If we want a name for nova liaison to cinder, then I can put my name in, 
I've spent enough time in the cinder channel lately and have been 
reviewing more volume-related code in nova where I'm not *completely* 
lost, just *kind of* lost.

I would have been interested in attending the cinder meetup to represent 
nova except for that the email came out less than a week ago and the 
meetup is next week, which leaves little time to prepare for that kind 
of thing when you have family stuff to sort out for travel.
