Upcoming changes to Design Summit format

Since the very beginning of OpenStack we fulfilled our Open Design promise by organizing a developer gathering open to all OpenStack contributors at the beginning of all our development cycles, called the Design Summit. Those events have proven to be an essential part of OpenStack success and growth. Lots of things are changing for the Atlanta “Juno” Summit: staggering conference and Design Summit, no more unconference but “Other Projects” dedicated track, more coordination with cross project discussions.
