    From the recent operator mini-summit, we expect to prepare a key set of enhancements. The feedback from the March 3rd meeting will be presented along with discussion on how to address the required improvements.

  • Embracing the End User - Chris and Vish
    As more OpenStack-powered clouds become available, there are a growing number of "end users" of these clouds that have very different concerns than the operators of those clouds. While User Committee has done a fantastic job of representing the interests of those using OpenStack to build and operate public and private clouds, the success of OpenStack will increasingly require a greater focus on the concerns of end users of the clouds powered by OpenStack. We propose assembling a small group to develop a proposal to be presented at the upcoming board meeting to address this growing need.
