[Openstack-operators] OPs Midcycle location discussion.

Hi everyone,

The Product WG is finalizing our mid-cycle plans and I wanted to confirm
the conclusion of this thread to bring into that discussion...

Reviewing the numerous responses here, it seems like the majority opted for
option #1 (one 'official' ops mid-cycle but not precluding regional ones)
and, in this specific instance, the 'official' one is the one happening in
Manchester.  Would you agree with this summary?

If we want to attempt a hub/spoke model (e.g. start etherpad-based
conversations at the 'official' mid-cycle but continue to build on those
topics at the regional events) then we can also discuss ideas on how to
help with the effort of summarizing discussions and topics.
