Thank you Mark for writing this up! If you are interested in new interop
programs, please comment on https://review.openstack.org/#/c/472785/.
In addition, we will also be discussing this during our weekly meeting on
Wednesday, 11:00 AM CST/ 16:00 UTC in #openstack-meeting-3. If you cannot
join us for the meeting at that time, find us in #openstack-interop

Thank you,
