Subject:Re: [openstack-dev] [all] A proposal to separate the design summit

[...] As a result of this proposal, there will still be four events each year, two
"OpenStack Summit" events and two "MidCycle" events.

Actually, the OpenStack summit becomes the midcycle event. The new separated contributors-oriented event[tm] happens at the beginning of the new cycle.

[...] Given the number of projects, and leaving aside high bandwidth internet and
remote participation, providing dedicated meeting room for the duration of the
MidCycle event for each project is a considerable undertaking. I believe
therefore that the consequence is that the MidCycle event will end up being of
comparable scale to the current Design Summit or larger, and will likely need a
similar venue.

It still is an order of magnitude smaller than the "OpenStack Summit". Think 600 people instead of 6000. The idea behind co-hosting is to facilitate cross-project interactions. You know where to find people, and you can easily arrange a meeting between two teams for an hour.

[...] At the current OpenStack Summit, there is an opportunity for contributors,
customers and operators to interact, not just in technical meetings, but also in
a social setting. I think this is valuable, even though there seems to be a
number of people who believe that this is not necessarily the case.

I don't think the proposal removes that opportunity. Contributors /can/ still go to OpenStack Summits. They just don't /have to/. I just don't think every contributor needs to be present at every OpenStack Summit, while I'd like to see most of them present at every separated contributors-oriented event[tm].
