I think I would prefer a hub and spoke style of some kind as well, not
sure what that exactly would look like though. Perhaps that just means
the first option that was laid out, which mentions not precluding
other regional operator meetups. I'm quite interested in the
Manchester meetup because I think operators there will be deploying
clouds more like the one I do. My two cents. :)
