We've summarized the manila PTG sessions in this etherpad [1] and I've 
included its contents below.

Please feel free to supplement/correct as appropriate, or to follow up 
on this mailing list.

We'll use this etherpad to distill AIs, focus areas, etc. from the Stein PTG

	*  https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/manila-rocky-retrospective

	* Should plan regional bug smash days and participate in and publish regional OpenStack/open source events
		* Need someone to lead? (See AI for tbarron)
	* Need more/earlier review attention for approved specs - PTL needs to keep attention on review priorities
	* Use our wiki rather than misc. etherpads to track work, review focus, liaisons, etc.
		* Add "Bug Czar", bug deputies info on the wiki

Survey Results:

	* Active-active share service
		* Assignee: gouthamr
		* we were going to wait for cinder action because of downstream tooz back end dependencies
		* but later Cinder decided to move ahead aggressively on this since it's needed for Edge distributed control plane topology so we may start work in manila on this in this cycle too
	* openstack client integration
		* Assignee: gouthamr will drive, distribute work
		* We might be able to get an Outreachy intern to help with this +++

	* uWSGI enablement
		* Assignee: vkmc
		* By default in devstack?

	* Hold off on storyboard migration till attachments issue is resolved
	* Don't need placement service but (like cinder) can use Jay Pipes DB generation synchronization technique to avoid scheduler races
		* Can publish info to placement if / when that is useful for nova
	* Use "low-hanging-fruit" as a bug tag on trivial bugs
	* Pro-active backport policy for non-vendor fixes (Also see AIs for gouthamr/ganso)
		* Vendor fixes need a +1 or +2 from a vendor reviewer if they are active

Action Items:
	* tbarron: follow up on user survey question, how to refresh it, talk with manila community
	* tbarron: refurbish the manila wiki as central landing spot for review focus, roles (liaisons, bug czar, etc. rather than us maintaining miscellaneous etherpads that get lost.
	* tbarron: get agreement on mid-cycle meetup (maybe virtual) and America's bug smash +1
	* ganso: post proposed stable branch policy for review & talk with gouthamr about it
	* gouthamr: post proposed revised review policy for review
	* gouthamr: drive question of graduation of Experimental features via weekly manila meeting/dev mail list
	* dustins: Send email to the Manila list to have people sign up for being "Bug Deputies"
