[Openstack-operators] Proposal for an 'Operations' project

Hi Operators!

I felt like OpenStack didn't have enough projects, so here's another one.

During the summit I feel like I'm repeatedly having the same conversations
with different groups about bespoke approaches to operational tasks, and
wrapping these in a project might be a way to promote collaboration on them.

Off the top of my head there's half a dozen things that might belong here:

 - Packaging tooling (spec files/fpm script/whatever)
 - (Ansible/other) playbooks for common tasks
 - Log aggregation (Logstash/Splunk) filters and tagging
 - Monitoring (Nagios) checks
 - Ops dashboards

There's also things that *might* belong here but maybe not:

 - Chef/Puppet/Ansible/Salt OpenStack config management modules

Today these are generally either wrapped up in products from various
companies, or in each company's github repo.

For those of you who are still around at the design summit and don't have
plans for tomorrow, how about we meet on Friday morning at the large white
couch in the meridian foyer at 9am? Let's see what we can sort out.
