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

Good question. The PTG is definitely occurring in the Fall.  We would 
evaluate the value of it as a community based on feedback from the 
PTG/Ops meetup, Board feedback, survey results, budget, etc...  If it 
was decided not to hold the PTG in 2019, we would of course need to 
reevaluate at that time.

Let me know if I can answer any further questions.
