I also find it interesting. I, in fact, added the ansible and python
packaging related repos to the list, because I found it interesting.

It's also nice to see that we're not completely insular - that we, as
OpenStack, also work with others. We have humans working in both
openstack and openvswitch, for instance. And who are working in ansible
and openstack. Etc. I think that's a great positive thing to be able to
highlight - we are, after all, not an island to ourselves, but are part
of a larger community.

So, my vote will be to keep them. I'm only one vote, of course, but I
think it would be a shame to get rid of them.
