Discussion in the cloudstack PMC has started to get a representative in there.

Originally we thought of doing a CloudStack track -since we won't do our own 3 day event in
Austin-, but seeing Ross's email we might be interested to work on a cloud track(s).

Do folks who participate in this need to be ASF members ? we only have 4 asf members in the
cloudstack PMC and it could be that the rep for Austin won't be an ASF member.


PS: Thanks to Rich for Budapest. I have been running the cloudstack conference the last 3
times, and it is a real time sinker.
