I have always considered StackForge projects (the vast majority anyway)
projects that have the ultimate desire to be an integral part of the
OpenStack ecosystem, and as such would need to follow the same model of the
other openstack projects (at least before the latest governance changes).
This is what I meant 'by bound to the same governance model', ie. besides
the legalities, following the same rules as any other OpenStack project,
but I can see I may have generated confusion with my point.

Thierry, thanks for the clarification.
