For me, this is somewhat concerning. When the PTG was proposed, It was
suggested as a replacement for Mid Cycles, with a design summit at the
I thought it was a good idea, but I never thought that we would have a
situation where there was a possibility to turn away projects that:
a) Traditionally had mid cycles
b) Was an active user of design summit space.
What I am getting from this is a very real chance that some projects
will now have 3 things in a 6 month cycle they need to do.
PTG - to do cross project work (If I had to fly transatlantic for 2
days of cross project, with no room for my project after that, I would
not be happy)
Mid Cycle / Self Hosted design summit - as we do not have space anymore
at the traditional summit, or the PTG
Traditional Summit - close the loop with users / Ops / employer tasks.
If I proposed this I might get 2 of 3, and I know what I would be
dropping (hint - its the one with 24 hours of traveling for maybe 16
hours of face to face).
I foresee quite a lot of cross project disengagement from smaller teams
if this is how we are going to proceed.
We are also getting back to the old catch-22 issue we had in the
incubation / integration days - its harder to get diversity of
contributors up, if a project are not at the PTG, but the project
won't be guaranteed space, due to the lack of diversity.
