OK, that assumption could be at least partially true, especially for say
horizontal efforts such as release-mgmt, VMT, upgrades, API-WG & such,
and in general the type of concerns that are generally aired on the cross-
project track at summit.
However it misses the fact that TripleO, as well as having many touch-points
with other projects, also has its own vertical personality as an individual
project, and so will also need space to have discussions about issues more
internal to the project.
For such a project, assigning it to the horizontal bucket (Wed-Fri) feels
more appropriate. I'd expect joint sessions between projects (e.g.TripleO/
Ironic or Nova/Cinder) would still be help during the "vertical" portion
of the week, especially if there's a trend towards some project-specific
contributors limiting their attendance to those 3 days.
