Without resorting to anecdote, two things from the foundation are interesting to me on this topic.

First, the foundation is making individual project logos for each project, thus promoting the individual project, and has said they will factor in to future OpenStack marketing.

Second, the foundation messaging around the PTG emphasizes per-project developers. From https://www.openstack.org/ptg/

The event is not optimized for non-contributors or people who can’t relate to a specific project team. Each team is given a single room and attendees are expected to spend all their time with their project team. Attendees who can’t pick a specific team to work with are encouraged to skip the event in favor of attending the OpenStack Summit, where a broader range of topics is discussed.
