Thanks for raising this. In my experience, it's a rare project that
moves from a single-sponsor model to a full-blown community model that
doesn't hit some growing pains. So here we are.

On my end, I'll do my best to ensure that anything touching on Apache
CloudStack and events that I work with are discussed on-list, etc. If
there's an area where I fall down on that, please say something.
Coordinating those types of events/activities are a *bit* less

All that to say - I appreciate any feedback or concerns, and any
assistance that the community would care to provide when I'm doing
anything that represents or touches on Apache CloudStack. I take my
responsibilities as an individual contributor to CloudStack very

a successful *community* project.
