Please don't take this the wrong way, Dean, but you aren't seriously 
suggesting that anyone outside of Windriver/Intel would ever contribute 
to these repos are you?

What motivation would anyone outside of Windriver/Intel -- who must make 
money on this effort otherwise I have no idea why they are doing it -- 
have to commit any code at all to StarlingX?

I'm truly wondering why was this even open-sourced to begin with? I'm as 
big a supporter of open source as anyone, but I'm really struggling to 
comprehend the business, technical, or marketing decisions behind this 
action. Please help me understand. What am I missing?

My personal opinion is that I don't think that any products, derivatives 
or distributions should be hosted on openstack.org infrastructure.

Are any of the distributions of OpenStack listed at 
https://www.openstack.org/marketplace/distros/ hosted on openstack.org 
infrastructure? No. And I think that is completely appropriate.
