I have the feeling you're assigning too much importance to the conversations that happen face to face in the summit. Summits are the apex, the end (or one of the final moments) of conversations that started months/weeks before the bi-annual event. They're not the place where an elite shows up, discusses newly revealed topics and decides without involving anyone else. With the design summits being the result of longer conversations, there is very little risk for the relevant people for *that specific* conversation not to be in the room. For those rare occasions, we have setup VoIP bridges and other tools to include them in the room, in real time and have them participate to the decision-making process in full. I don't accept the thought that everything has to go back to the mailing list because that would slow us down *even more*. We're trying to keep a fine balancing act in place here, between speed and execution and inclusion. If someone has troubles going to the Summit, let's talk and solve the problems of the individuals because we can't generalize this issue too much. /stef __________________________________________________________________________ OpenStack Development Mailing List (not for usage questions) Unsubscribe: openstack-dev-requ...@lists.openstack.org?subject:unsubscribe http://lists.openstack.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/openstack-dev
