RFC: Cloud Interop FAD

Hi, Everyone,

Now that a lot of cloud software is in or on its way into Fedora, I 
wonder how easy it is to actually make use of it.  We seem to have 
installation guides, but not much about how to actually employ the cloud 
to do something useful.  For instance, now that OpenShift is on the 
feature list, Fedora's Cloud Guide could use some recipes for OpenShift 
images on, say, OpenStack and Eucalyptus.

So in the interest of Getting Things Done, I suggest that we gather for 
a high-bandwidth Fedora Activity Day to work on recipes for making the 
various bits of cloud software in Fedora work in concert (i.e. for 
making $PaaS work on $IaaS), and fix whatever bugs we encounter during 
the process.

Which of you are interested in attending such an event?  What would you 
like to work on there?  Specific goals are the most important thing to 
have when planning a FAD to make the day the most likely to result in 
something useful.

What do you all think?

Garrett Holmstrom
