It's also worth noting that Freezer is currently an official OpenStack 
project while Ekko is not, so there is no real overlap (yet).

If Ekko wants one day to become an official project, it would be great 
to clarify its positioning relative to Freezer before it applies, as I 
expect that will be the first question from the Technical Committee.
