My summary of this (especially the free-text answers at the end) is:
* 30% response rate is pretty good! Not sure how representative it is.
* Primarily people familiar with Red Hat's virtualization
* Attendees are interested in what's coming on the horizon, and when
certain features will be available in oVirt and RHEV
* Primarily users, half of respondents also indicated either integrator
* Many people mentioned wanting to learn more about specific features or
about the project - so hands-on or demo sessions will be important
* oVirt in the industry - the relationship & positioning relative to
openstack and competitors came up often

(free text field)
Latest on the oVirt 3.1 recently released. Also latest on what the
future direction of oVirt and especially if someone can cover what the
latest on VDSM Storage side of things... Repository engines, SDM, Mixing
of storage domains etc.
Understand what it is and how it works including its various features so
that as a tester I can come up with good tests.
Knowledge, people networking and fun?
mostly on how to use oVirt with respect to quickly deploying images
1. Overview of oVirt,
2. How well it matches up to the existing virtualization management
stack from competitors, esp vSphere, and others?
3. How well can it integrate with cloud management stack like Openstack
4. What are the existing gaps in the management stack based out of KVM
hypervisor that is available in the market and how oVirt can probably be
the answer to all the confusion/gaps that is seen in the current
Management stack around KVM.
5. oVirt being an open-source version of RHEVM (if my understanding is
correct), can other companies tailor & sell oVirt as their offerings.
What's the licensing like?

Knowledge/Info to get started with oVirt development
1) Future course of ovirt project
2) Relation between ovirt and RHEVM( missing features like support for VDI)
