You know, we haven't actually put numbers on it. But I'd be
comfortable with a few weeks of sustained involvement.

Well, I don't think we want a situation where when a single org
decides to tackle something else for a bit, that noone can comfortably
fix bugs in e.g. Tuskar / or worse the whole thing stalls - thats why
I've been so keen to get /everyone/ in Tripleo-core familiar with the
entire collection of codebases we're maintaining.

So I think after 3 months that other cores should be reasonably familiar too ;).

That said, perhaps we should review these projects.

Tuskar as an API to drive deployment and ops clearly belongs in
TripleO - though we need to keep pushing features out of it into more
generalised tools like Heat, Nova and Solum. TuskarUI though, as far
as I know all the other programs have their web UI in Horizon itself -
perhaps TuskarUI belongs in the Horizon program as a separate code
base for now, and merge them once Tuskar begins integration?
