[Openstack-operators] IMPORTANT - future of ops meetups!

Hello Everyone
  You've probably see the thread about possibly combining ops meetups with
PTG to make a new broader event. Here is a rough draft of what that would
actually look like:

*"Monday and Tuesday are cross-project days where ops are welcome to attend
SIG and other discussions, and if not interested can be travel days or
whatever for them. Then Wed-Thurs are the two tracks/events where the ops
folks have what has traditionally been done for ops meetups. Then Friday is
a travel day or ops can stick around to follow up with dev-side thingsthat
they weren't able to get to over the week or wanted to follow up on."*

Thanks to Sean McGinnis for proposing this to get the ball rolling. This
would mean there's a "normal" ops meetup for two days on days 3 and 4 of
this combined event, with the option of attending earlier (days 1 and 2) if
you want to contribute to dev/ops/openstack community sessions (e.g. SIGs),
and possibly also staying a 5th day.

The event is currently pencilled in for September in a central part of the
USA. It will be organized by the Foundation logistically but the various
sub-groups own their technical agendas.

We unfortunately forgot to record the chat as a formal meeting, but you can
see the raw IRC chat here

With the current level of support for this idea, it looks likely to happen,
but, particularly if you object, please speak up ASAP. Note that this would
be instead of the tentative idea we had of an event in NYC in August. If
this is welcomed by the operators community, I'll certainly try to swap the
sponsorship from my employer over to this as I feel it will be even more
valuable and initial feedback from other potential sponsors is favorable.

Please make your voice heard on this issue!
