[This is meant to be one of (I hope) several conversation-provoking
questions directed at prospective TC members to help the community
understand their positions before considering how to vote in the
ongoing election.]

We are discussing adding at least one new project this cycle, and
the specific case of Adjutant has brought up questions about the
criteria we use for evaluating new projects when they apply to
become official.  Although the current system does include some
well-defined requirements [1], it was also designed to rely on TC
members to use their judgement in some other areas, to account for
changing circumstances over the life of the project and to reflect
the position that governance is not something we can automate away.

Without letting the conversation devolve too much into a discussion
of Adjutant's case, please talk a little about how you would evaluate
a project's application in general.  What sorts of things do you
consider when deciding whether a project "aligns with the OpenStack
Mission," for example?
