I'm a little concerned about this as well.  Though presumably at least
the PTLs would still attend the User/Ops conference even if their
project didn't co-schedule a midcycle and while there could be more
focused on that user feed back rather than splitting their attention
with implementation detais and other design summit type issues.

I'm not entierly settled in my opinion yet, but right now the proposed
changes seem like a good direction to me.

Moving the design summit seems popular with the dev community here.

Moving the User/Ops session further after release also seems like a
good plan as there will be some people there with real production
experiance with the new release.  In Tokyo we had an Operators session
on upgrade issues with Liberty that was very well attended but exactly
zero attendees had actually run the upgrade in production.

So later in the cycle is definitely better for getting feed back on
the last realeas, but is there a good plan for how that feed back will
feed into the next release (or maybe at that point it will be next+1)?
