Re: TC seats, I'd like to encourage people with operational experience 
of OpenStack to run for election.

We have lots of OpenStack users. Our focus today is more on continuously 
improving the experience of running OpenStack. Filling the gaps rather 
than developing radically-new breaking features. Integrating with other 
open infrastructure software that you run alongside it.

So, in governance and key policy decisions, we rely on the feedback of 
people that have practical experience operating the software. Having 
more of those directly involved in the TC will facilitate that feedback 
loop, and make sure we take into account a wide variety of situations.

Being on the TC is not as time consuming as you might think. The 
time-consuming part is trying to stay on top of what's happening with 
OpenStack: I would say that being on the TC just adds a max of two hours 
per week (reviewing proposed changes, chiming in on governance 
discussions on the mailing-list, attending some weekly office hours or 
the monthly meeting). But it is a great way to make sure the direction 
of the software is aligned to your needs as an OpenStack user, and the 
needs of other users in a similar situation.

Thanks for considering it!
