That would be "any OpenStack project", with the project structure reform
hopefully completed by then. That would likely let projects that were
previously in the "other projects" track have time to apply and to be
considered full Design Summit citizens. The presence of a busy "other
projects" track to cover for unofficial projects in previous summits
really was an early sign that something was wrong with our definition of
"OpenStack projects" anyway :)

Now I expect the TC to split the limited resources following metrics
like team size and development activity. Small projects might end up
having just a couple sessions in mostly-empty rooms, yes... still better
than not giving space at all.
