Hi all,

During the Denver 2019 Summit the Public Cloud SIG identified that the 
current situation around public cloud (and private) billing is somewhat 
fragmented. Some operators use ceilometer, some Cloudkitty, and many use 
custom implementations. We have started an initiative to find a solution 
for this issue and figure out a way moving forward that can solve the 
needs and gaps in current solutions that exists, a solution that will 
make it easier for all openstack clouds, private and public, to manage 

We are at a very early stage here, brainstorming around requirements and 
ideas, and would like to collect as much information about potential 
requirements and solutions as possible before we get any further. An 
etherpad [0] is created for the initial collection of information, and 
we would appreciate feedback and ideas there before the next Public 
Cloud SIG meeting that will take place 23rd of May 2019 at 1400 UTC in 
the #openstack-publiccloud channel.
