I'd like to see us have a discussion about packaging for various 
distros, discuss dependencies, build system, possibly a follow on to 
Alex's proposal 
( and 
things related to these topics. Maybe a 2 hour session for these topics.

As more and more stuff is getting co-located with LinuxCon and the days 
earlier in the week I am not certain there'll be a lot of people that 
can devote a whole day to CloudStack, thus having somewhat of a time 
plan may be advantageous as people can slip in and out.
