I would love to personally make it live under the openstack/ namespace
however I do feel like that does make it 'pretty darn official' and the quality
of the tools there isn't something we probably want to put our name under
yet.  A lot of it is really old (2+ years old) and it probably needs a
bit of time
to get into a state where it's something that we can make official.

Personally, I think that repo should be nothing but a 'buffer' between project
features and tools needed by deployers, a lot of the things there seem to be
there because of bugs (i.e. orphaned resource cleanup -- which should ideally
be cleaned up by the service itself or warned there), clean-up disks for deleted
VMs that were not removed, etc.
