Great, that's a relief.

Yes, I saw the updated invite information and it was much clearer as
to the intent. Thanks for clarifying!

My understanding is that it exists primarily to host the OpenStack
Foundation Board of Directors meetings and as a bridge for
coordinating similar sorts of discussions between representatives of
member companies, but all that is outside the jurisdiction of our
technical community and is targeting a different audience with
sometimes significantly different priorities from ours. It's a
resource for the OpenStack Foundation in its day-to-day operations
as a nonprofit trade organization, and their needs and goals aren't
always the same as those of the community of contributors to the
OpenStack project itself.

I'm not thrilled by it either, but I've come to accept that the
users of that service are hamstrung by a dependence on specific
technologies due to frequent interaction with other demographics who
don't necessarily share our community ideals.
