[openstack-dev] [oslo][openstackclient] transferring maintenance of cliff to the OpenStack client team

The team behind the unified command line tool is preparing to ask the TC to allow us to become an official team. The openstack/python-openstackclient repository will be managed by this "new" team, and I suggested we also consider transferring ownership of openstack/cliff from Oslo at the same time.

Cliff was created specifically to meet the needs to python-openstackclient, and it is still primarily maintained by folks who will be members of the new team. Some projects outside of OpenStack have adopted it, so I think it makes sense to keep it as a separate repository and continue to release it that way (Oslo doesn’t have to be the only project team to do that, after all).

Dean will be submitting a governance change to create the new program, but before we do that I wanted to get general feedback from the team about the ownership change. We’ll repeat what we did with PyCADF and hacking when we transferred those, and offer anyone in oslo-core the chance to continue reviewing cliff code if they want to be on the cliff-core team.

Please let me know if you have objections or comments.
