Julia and Chris,

Thanks for putting this together.  Wanted to share some thoughts in-line

The document is a really good high level view of what each OpenStack 
project should hopefully conform to.  I think it would be good to get 
this into the Upstream Institute education in some way as I think it is 
something that new contributors should understand and keep in mind.  It 
certainly would have helped me as a newbie to think about this.

Good idea to have teams go through this.  I will work on doing the above 
for Cinder.
