It looks like much of this confusion stemmed from recommendation by
project-config-core reviewers, unfortunately. We too often see
people from official teams in OpenStack request new Git repositories
for work their team will be performing, but who forget to also
record them in the appropriate governance lists. As a result, if a
proposed repository looks closely-related to the work of an existing
team (in this case possibly either Horizon or Telemetry) we usually
assume this was the case and recommend during the review process
that they file a corresponding change to the OpenStack TC's
governance repository. Given this is an independent group's work for
which neither the Horizon nor Telemetry teams have expressed an
interest in adopting responsibility, it's perfectly acceptable to
have it operate as an unofficial project or to apply for status as
another official project team within OpenStack.

The main differences between the two options are that contributors
to official OpenStack project teams gain the ability to vote in
Technical Committee elections, their repositories can publish
documentation on the https://docs.openstack.org/ Web site, they're
able to reserve space for team-specific discussions and working
sessions at OSF Project Teams Gathering meetings (such as the one
coming up in Denver immediately following the Open Infrastructure
Summit)... but official project teams are also expected to hold team
lead elections twice a year, participate in OpenStack release
processes, follow up on implementing cycle goals, and otherwise meet
the requirements laid out in our
