Thanks for responding Ed.

I would propose that the TC should work on a motion and present it to
the OpenStack development community to encourage projects on creating
an infrastructure liaison role.  While I'd understand that the
infrastructure team is quite busy these days, but before working on
setting a motion in place, it would be best to listen more to the
infrastructure team about this sort of concept and how we can bridge
the gap between developers and the infrastructure team.

I don't think the TC's resolution should operate by enforcement but
rather by empowerment, therefore I would hope that the result of this
would be a well documented resolution regarding this subject which
could demonstrate the strong value in adopting this role within
project teams, encouraging teams to find that individual (or many) who
can step up and work together with the infrastructure team.
