As discussed in TripleO and Horizon meetings, we are proposing to move 
Tuskar UI under the Horizon umbrella. Since we are building our UI 
solution on top of Horizon, we think this is a good fit. It will allow 
us to get feedback and reviews from the appropriate group of developers.

Tuskar UI is a user interface for the design, deployment, monitoring, 
and management of OpenStack. The code is built on the Horizon framework 
and facilitates the TripleO approach to deployment.  We work closely 
with the TripleO team and will continue to do so. The Tuskar UI itself 
is implemented as a new tab, headed "Infrastructure", which is added as 
a dashboard to OpenStack Horizon. For more information about the TripleO 
project, check out the project wiki: 

The following is a proposal on how the Tuskar UI project could be 
- Create a new codebase for the Tuskar-UI under the horizon umbrella, 
with its own core team
- As an exception to the usual contribution process, commits to 
Tuskar-UI codebase. may be pushed, +2 and approved by one company. This 
is intended to make the development process faster. We are currently 
developing the Tuskar-UI at a fast pace and there are not yet many 
contributors who aren't employed by Red Hat  that are familiar with the 
code. As the code stabilises, and attracts users and developers, this 
exception can be removed.
- The Tuskar-UI cores would be cores of Tuskar-UI codebase only. Horizon 
cores would be cores of the whole Horizon program.

What does it mean for Horizon?
- There will be more developers, reviewers and patches coming to Horizon 
(as a program).
- Horizon contributors will have time to get familiar with the Tuskar-UI 
code, before we decide to merge it into the Horizon codebase.

If you have any questions, please ask!
