I disagree. IMO, *expecting* people to travel, potentially across the globe, 4 times a year is an unreasonable expectation, and quite uncharacteristic of open source projects. If we can't figure out a way to have the most important conversations in a way that is inclusive of everyone, we're failing with our processes. By all means, if a subset wants to meet up and make progress on some things, I think that's fine. I don't think anyone think it's not useful. However, discussions need to be summarized and taken back to the list for discussion before decisions are made. That's not the way things are trending here, and I think that's a problem. -- Russell Bryant _______________________________________________ OpenStack-dev mailing list OpenStackemail@example.com http://lists.openstack.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/openstack-dev
