Q

What do you see as the Board's role in OpenStack's success?

A

Board should setup a set of rules and directions that we as the community can rally behind and give us room to operate for a few years. Board need to be able to represent three communities whose success is critical to OpenStack success: Users/Customers, Technical/Development, and Vendor community around OpenStack, not just distro vendors.

Q

What do you think the top priority of the Board should be over the next year?

A

First, my goal is for a board to provide a forum for User, Technical and Vendor communities. The proper balance between these three is critical for OpenStack success.
