Hi everyone,

Following the adoption by the Technical Committee of the project
structure reform specification[1], I proposed a number of initial
changes[2] on the governance repository.


I attract your attention of the 3rd change in this series[3], which
proposes the new, simpler, more objective requirements to place on
future entrants in the realm of "OpenStack projects". Everyone has a
slightly different idea on the amount and nature of those, so feel free
to comment on this thread and/or the review itself.

The current version proposed is a strawman based on the "are you one of
us" test that Monty originally proposed on [4] and the example list that
was included in the spec. I expect it to be heavily discussed and to
evolve a bit before it's actually voted on and adopted by the Technical

So if you have a strong opinion on that, please join the discussion now :)
