So +1, obviously (for the benefit of those who weren't at the Forum,
I... may have suggested it?).
Even if there were only one way to do autoscaling in OpenStack, it would
be an inherently cross-project thing - and in fact there are multiple
options for each piece of the puzzle. I really like Rico's idea of
building documentation and test suites to make user experience of
autoscaling better, and the best place to host those would be a SIG
rather than any individual project.
We know there are a *lot* of folks out there under the radar using
autoscaling in OpenStack, so maybe a SIG will also provide a way to draw
some of them out of the woodwork to tell us more about their use cases.
