Indeed, I totally agree.
While at this stage we can't *guarantee* space for TripleO, I really
hope that we'll be able to provide space. One interesting factor is that
there should be less tension for space in the "horizontal" part of the
week than in the "vertical" part of the week**. TripleO's cross-cutting
nature makes it a good fit for the "horizontal" segment, so I'm hopeful
we can make that work. We should know very soon, once we collect the
results of the PTL survey. Stay tuned!
** The PTG week is split between horizontal team meetings
(Monday/Tuesday) and vertical team meetings (Wednesday-Friday). As we
have more vertical teams than horizontal teams (and the space is the
same size), we /should/ have more flexibility to add horizontal stuff.
