http://summit.ubuntu.com/getinvolved/propose-a-session/. You want a 
discussion session. I can help if it's still confusing, but see below. 
Sounds like you might not want a session anymore.

Seems you have some things to discuss, but it doesn't have to be a 
session if you don't want it to be. Since we've settled on not changing 
the default, the impact is certainly lessened and indeed there is less 
to discuss. It's up to you. We should start a new thread to discuss your 
questions though if you want to go that route. Perhaps a status from 
Marc would help also.

I think I'm in this camp. Keep the default as simple as possible. More 
advanced usage can advocate other tools. And there's no reason they can 
be packaged in the ubuntu archives so they are easy to get.
