And I don't think there's anything wrong with this. TBH, I thought
being in stackforge was already a requirement. If it is not, I think
it should be.

Moving projects under stackforge before going under openstack will
help us to test them in part of the infrastructure, it'll give the
team enough information about OpenStack's infrastructure, Gerrit's
workflow, gates and more. Also, this will give more information to the
TC wrt the team / project integration with OpenStack.
