I think the format generally proved to make sense; it really helped the
conversation to flow in an informal but still productive fashion.
The two downsides from my personal POV:
- room choice; I guess that's pretty obvious and not really worth too
much discussion (especially the pillars and the constant noise being
generated by the staff in the background)
- I can't help it, but the overall number of attendees seemed to be a
little bit *too* small. I'm not asking for a revival of a 90+ people
on the kernel summit (that absolutely doesn't fit the nature of
discussions and the format), but perhaps 40 would make sense? There
definitely were a few moments when I felt that the discussion came to
a point where having one particular missing person would be helpful.
I guess that given this was the first time we've had this limited
setup, we are still converging to the "best" group size?
