Now as the PTG is over (for nova at least as we finished a bit earlier) 
Sylvain and me will start sending out summary mails about the topics we 
discussed to create a place to further discuss the topics with the rest 
of the nova team. The etherpad[1] contains most of the agreements we 
reached during the discussions but of course none of them are final as 
we did not have a core quorum on the PTG.

Thanks for everyone who contributed in any way to the PTG discussions!
