These all seem like good topics for big cross-project issues.

I've never liked the "BM/VM" platform naming thing, it seems to imply 
that the only things one needs to care about for these discussions is if 
they work on or use nova and ironic, and that's generally not the case.

So if you do have a session about this really cross-project 
platform-specific stuff, can we at least not call it "BM/VM"? Plus, "BM" 
always makes me think of something I'd rather not see in a room with 
other people.
