This is not our first iteration at this, and it feels like we never come
up with a solution that covers all the bases. Past failure can generally
be traced back to the absence of the owner of a critical puzzle piece...
so what is the way forward ?

Should we write a openstack-specs and pray that all the puzzle piece
owners review it ?

Should we lock up all the puzzle piece owners in the QA/Infra/RelMgt
Friday sprint room in Vancouver and get them (us) to sort it out ?
