No problem, this is the correct mailing list as this message is about
discussing the "future" of an openstack component.

This message is a good way to start: circulate the idea and start
collecting feedback from other developers. As Daniel P. Berrange said,
you may need to file a spec and blueprint later on if you get positive
feedback. Jay's message makes me think that your proposal may need more
discussion on this list, maybe on IRC too, before you embark in
proposing a spec+blueprint.

A small and important note: companies are not people (despite what US
Supreme Court thinks), so a new feature is proposed by people. People
propose new features and discuss them, defend them, develop them, review
them, etc. Companies give money in exchange. It's a crucial distinction.

Bah. This message was sent to a public mailing list. If it contains
confidential information, tough for Orange: it's gone, public, used,
copied and distributed. The receivers cannot be held accountable. These
automatic messages are so useless.
