Well -1 to that, obviously, from me.

Ceilometer is on track to fully execute on the gap analysis coverage
plan agreed with the TC at the outset of this cycle, and has an active
plan in progress to address architectural debt.

You write as if cross-project efforts are both of fixed size and
amenable to centralized command & control.

Neither of which is actually the case, IMO.

Additional cross-project resources can be ponied up by the large
contributor companies, and existing cross-project resources are not
necessarily divertable on command.
