I wouldn't think there'd be any opposition to having additional
contributed Lua scripts for additional services that Fuel doesn't yet
have. It's always easier to commit to one tree, but distinct
components like this separated out encourages code sharing (done
properly). I did assume that the new repo would be in the OpenStack
namespace, but even if it weren't I'd still think a separate repo is
best. Sure the files are small, but given the purpose of these files
small changes could potentially have a huge impact on the logs.

In summary, +1 to temporarily having the Lua scripts in tree until
they can be properly migrated to a new repository.
