Hi Thierry,

I'd like the idea about themes and teams. Themes bring the opportunity 
to learn work methods and learn ways of working together, across 
OpenStack project teams and new people who are interested. There are so 
many things to learn from the OpenStack community like documentation, 
code review, code testing, automation, project work. This is the chance 
to prove the 4 O's and to give a platform for it.
Call it Summit 2.0. For 2 days, people who are not members of any 
project team but who are interested in their work or in the workings of 
the OpenStack community.
The other 3 days are really for project team work. I think 2 days would 
be also enough plus 1 day cross-project team work.
I'm not sure if I explained that correctly. I learned so much about 
working methods in the community. I think there may be more people 
proving it and maybe new enthusiastically people are joining in.

These are my thoughts about themes and teams :)

kind regards
