I definitely understand the timeline is tight.  One of the reasons that 
we publish the schedule so early is to enable community members to plan 
their schedule early, especially as there is more overlap with the main 
Summit Schedule in Denver.  Additionally, travel approval is often 
predicated upon someone showing they're leading/moderating a session.

Before publishing the schedule, we  print a draft Forum schedule for 
community feedback and start promotion of the schedule, which we have to 
put up on the OpenStack website and apps at 5 weeks out. Extending the 
date beyond the 10th won't give the Forum Selection Committee enough 
time to complete those tasks.

I think if the Ops team can come up with some high level discussion 
topics, we'll be happy to put some holds in the Forum schedule for 
Ops-specific content.  diablo_rojo has also offered to attend some of 
the Ops sessions remotely as well, if that would help you all shape some 
things into actual sessions.

I wish I could offer a further extension, but extending it another week 
would push too far into the process.
