Earlier I posted a message about a planning etherpad for the
extraction of placement


One of the goals of doing the planning and having the etherpad was
to be able to get to the PTG with some of the issues resolved so
that what little time we had at the PTG could be devoted to
resolving any difficult technical details we uncovered in the lead

One of the questions that has come up on the etherpad is about how
placement should be positioned, as a project, after the extraction.
The options are:

* A repo within the compute project
* Its own project, either:
   * working towards being official and governed
   * official and governed from the start

The etherpad has some discussion about this, but since that etherpad
is primarily for listing out the technical concerns I thought it
might be useful to bring the discussion out into a wider audience,
in a medium more oriented towards discussion. As placement is a
service targeted to serving the entire OpenStack community, talking
about it widely seems warranted.

The outcome I'd like to see happen is the one that makes sure
placement becomes useful to the most people and is worked on by the
most people, as quickly as possible. If how it is arranged as a
project will impact that, now is a good time to figure that out.

If you have thoughts about this, please share them in response.
