I'll let Tom comment on that, but the general idea in the strawman 
proposal was that the Ops "midcycle" event would be preserved as a 
separate event, but likely turn more and more regional to maximize local 
attendance. The rationale was that it's hard for ops to justify 
traveling to a contributors-branded event, while they can more easily 
justify going to the main OpenStack Summit user conference event, and to 
regional Ops gatherings.

But things are still pretty open on that front, so let's see what the 
feedback is.
