Thanks Chris for detail information. As it is very close and OpenStack-only-used lib,
For long term maintenance, it will be good if it stay under openstack. and if we want to
extend it with more common classes like APIVersionRequest thing[1]

Moving to oslo can be one idea to discuss. 

If you would like to keep it under openstack/ till opendev-transition, you can add
this in this ethercal[2] and after that, we can discuss to propose under some
official project like oslo etc ?
