Meetings around release times are a double-edged sword. On the one hand, the last ODL Dev Hack summit was good in that people coagulated together in a couple of rooms and got things done. OTOH, for anyone else that was there for the non-release-hackery, they had to attend sessions that were lightly attended, late, etc…  So I’d say focus on one thing or the other: dev summits that are not around release times, or hack fests that are.

We currently have a month between the planned Lithium release (6/25) and the ODL Summit (7/27), so that should help us be able to have it be more of a summit/forum and less of a hack fest.
It seems good to have hack fests around release times because it focuses people on the task at hand: the release, and I think its useful for people (that can) get together in person, to do so but its important that these things also have support for remote participation. The LF has equipment, tools and facilities for remote participation (and ODL owns some too), so we should put that to good use.

+1 to all of this. The question is how many and when?
