Ultimately there is a chicken and egg situation there -- they need to 
work on making it more like OpenStack, but it's difficult to justify the 
time to work on this until it actually is accepted as an OpenStack project.

We should communicate expectations clearly, make sure that promises are 
made, and then there is a leap of faith. But IMHO it is a very small 
leap as the TC can still control if it should be included in the next 
release, and the TC can also remove the project team if it never gets 
where it needs to be.

I agree. Expectations have been clearly communicated. It's time for us 
to give them a good chance to meet those.
