On top of that if needed we could go into cross-project sync with Manila to sync on the project specific roadmaps and action items if any on Wednesday. Does that make sense?

We are planning to have edge reference architecture models and testing type of discussions in the first two days (October 26-27) and have a cross-project and cross-community day on Wednesday (October 28). We would like to have a dedicated section for storage either on Monday or Tuesday.

But if you scheduled the storage discussion on Monday, some of us would be interested in attending just to hear what edge people are currently talking about storage-wise.  (Cinder is meeting Tuesday-Friday.)

>> We in Manila have discussed Edge deployment of shared file system service quite a bit.  Currently we think of the problem primarily as how to provide safe, multi-tenant shared file system infrastructure local to each Edge site so that the data path remains available to consumers at the Edge site even when it is disconnected from the core.
