My disagreements with accepting Poppy has been around testing, so let me
reiterate what I've already said in this thread.

The governance currently states that under Open Development "The project 
has core reviewers and adopts a test-driven gate in the OpenStack 
infrastructure for changes" [1].

If we don't have a solution like OpenCDN, Poppy has to adopt a reference
implementation that is a commercial entity, and infra has to also be 
dependent on it. I get Infra is already dependent on public cloud 
donations, but if we start opening the door to allow projects to bring 
in those commercial dependencies, that's not good.
