Just to add to the context - keep in mind that within HP (and I assume other large organisations such as IBM but can't speak directly from them) there are now many separate divisions working with Openstack (Public Cloud, Private Cloud Products, Labs, Consulting, etc), each bringing different perspectives to the table.    In another context many of these would be considered separate companies in their own right.
