We talked about this a bit in the nova channel today too.

I'm approaching this like the cross-project days at the design summit in 
the past where we'd propose topics and the TC would vote on them and 
they'd get scheduled, and then the rest of the design summit was for 
vertical-team discussions where we say how many rooms we want and then 
we schedule our sessions ourselves in cheddar.

For the Forum, I think we'll be submitting maybe three topics that I 
know of right now:

* cells (mostly project-specific but involves operators)
* placement (cross-project and operator involvement)
* limits (whole-of-openstack and operators/users)

Beyond those three, I don't plan on requesting any other nova-specific 
sessions (those aren't all nova-specific anyway).

For any of the nova developers that will be there, which will be a much 
smaller number than previous summits because of the format and because 
we did the PTG, I assume we'll talk about Pike development status and 
priorities during the downtime we have between the actual scheduled 
sessions that involve more than just nova (so we'll talk about the nova 
stuff in the free room area in other words).
