Please note that this project is not an official OpenStack project yet.
In particular, it's not been approved by the Technical Committee to join
the "big tent" yet, and it was actually never proposed there.

If you intend to propose this new project for inclusion, please propose
an openstack/governance change to that effect. You can find the current

In the mean time, please refrain from calling your project "OpenStack
Watcher". Thanks in advance!
