The trick with programs is that it's not just about finding themes and
aggregate existing projects around them. At the heart of a program is an
existing team of people that works (well) together towards that common goal.

Putting devstack in a "Developer tools" bucket only makes sense if the
team that cares about devstack also cares about those other "developer
tools". You don't really want to create an ugly stepchild effect by
adding random projects onto unwanting people's plates.
