I've integrated the feedback I've gotten on the design lounge. A couple of clarifications:
1) The space will be open both days of the formal summit. Apache Committers / contributors are invited to stop by any time and use the space to meet / network any time during the show.
2) Below I've listed the times that various project members have suggested they will be present to talk with others contributors about their project. If we get a big showing for any of these slots we'll encourage folks to do the unconference thing: Select a set of topics they want to talk about and break up into groups to do so.
3) This is an experiment. Our goal is to make the summit as useful as possible to the folks who build the Apache projects in the Apache Hadoop stack. Please let me know how it works for you and ideas for making this even more effective.
Committed times so far, with topic champion (Note - I've adjusted suggested times to fit with the program a bit more smoothly):
11-1 - Hive - Ashutosh - The stinger initiative and other Hive activities
2 - 4 - Security breakout - Kevin Minder - HSSO, Knox, Rhino
3 - 4 - Frameworks to run services like HBase on Yarn - Weave, Hoya … - Devaraj Das
4 - 5 - Accumulo - Billie Rinaldi
11-1 - Finishing Yarn - Arun Murthy - Near term improvements needed
2 - 4 - HDFS - Suresh & Sanjay
4 - 5 - Getting involved in Apache - Billie Rinaldi
See you all soon!
PS Please forward to other Apache -dev lists and CC me. Thanks!

I've been told BoFs and other such traditional formats have not historically worked for them, because they end up being about educating users about their projects, not actually working with their peers on how to make their projects better.
> So we are creating a space in the summit - marked in the event guide as DesignLounge - concurrent with the presentation tracks where Apache Project contributors can meet with their peers to plan the future of their project or work through various technical issues near and dear to their hearts.
> We're going to provide white boards and message boards and let folks take it from there in an unconference style. We think there will be room for about 4 groups to meet at once. Interested? Let me know what you think. Send me any ideas for how we can make this work best for you.
> The room will be 231A and B at the Hadoop Summit and will run from 10:30am to 5:00pm on Day 1 (26th June), and we can also run from 10:30am to 5:00pm on Day 2 (27th June) if we have a lot of topics that folk want to cover.

> • Finishing Yarn - what things need to get done NOW to make Yarn more effective
> If you are a project lead for one of the Apache projects, look at the schedule below and suggest a few slots when you think it would be best for your project to meet. I'll try to work out a schedule where no more than 2 projects are using the lounge at once.
