During the Liberty summit in Vancouver, the idea to maintain OpenStack packages for Debian and Ubuntu on upstream infra sparked. As part of the Openstack and Debian community we still want to push for it. Instead of trying to directly go for the /openstack namespace, we currently want to start with smaller baby steps, using Stackforge. Mostly, it is server packages for Debian which we want to see maintained there. All of the dependencies (including Oslo libraries and python-*client) will continue to be maintained using git.debian.org<http://git.debian.org>, as a shared effort between Debian and Ubuntu.
* One centralized place at stackforge to maintain package build manifests/specs for main OpenStack projects.
* Stackforge already has gerrit where could be attached additional gates for building and testing OpenStack packages for deb based Linux distributions.
* All changes related to the ways of how one or another OpenStack project should be installed would be represented or proposed to one place. So not only famous package maintainers can work on build manifests for packages, but also the entire community interested in packaging of OpenStack projects. Also this place could become as main base for packages for all deb based Linux distributions like Debian and Ubuntu.
* Package build manifests could be reviewed or adjusted not only by package maintainers, but also by python developers, that are writing OpenStack code and that's could be very valuable due to possible changes in configuration, paths and so on.
Here I propose list of OpenStack projects, it consists of about 25 of projects which of course would be changed with time due to possible birth of new projects .

You are missing designate (which is already packaged by both Debian and Ubuntu). We also now have a dashboard repo, along the same lines as sahara, mistral and murano.
