A key difference between the Ceph summit and the Ops Mid-cycle appears to
be that the Ops Mid-cycle is at least an order of magnitude bigger.

For a good amount of the Philly and Palo Alto mid-cycles there were 200ish
people in a single room.  Audio was a problem even for people sitting in
the room at times.   I think this is beyond “large boardroom” size.
