Except in the case of TripleO which is available as an official
OpenStack project.

I think we're at a point where we're far more open than we've ever been
before to the idea of collaborating with many different tools and
approaches. So, would you entertain the idea of participating in the "Deployment"
program rather than starting smoething new?

You're more than welcome in the TripleO meetup tomorrow in Gaughin.
