So to summarize the threadÅ 

I think the collective opinion is that we should do a CloudStack Collab
Summit in EMEA this spring and since Hugo's got the resources to help plan
in Amersterdam I think we should let him take the lead for that and
Sebastien, Mohammed, Wido and the others that stepped up can help him.
I'll volunteer to find the funding once he has a proposed venue and some
costs and the PPMC and ConCom sign-off on the event.

Also unless we get objections we'll plan for a second summit in North
America in the fall and want to try to get that venue reserved it is very
hard to find a place on short timeframes. I'll work to get the funding in
place for that one too.

To Chip's question on is two summits too many,  I see a huge appetite for
people to come talk about CloudStack.I
think since all decisions are made on list it's not like you miss out by
not going to both or either it's just nice to put faces to IRC nicks/email
addies. 

Anything else?
