Steven, my point in this thread is not about competition within a 
problem domain. It was specifically about overlapping REST API resource 

Kolla does not have a REST API.

Neither does Triple-O. Or OSAD. Or Puppet OpenStack. Or the OpenStack 
Chef Cookbooks.

So, I am failing to see that the above governance patch is indeed a 
precedent for this conversation. Rather, it was the governance patch 
that added Monasca as an official OpenStack project that I brought up 
the problem of the Monasca's API overlap with the OpenStack Telemetry 
API (which was Ceilometer's API at the time):


It was Joe Gordon and others who advised that there was nothing in the 
project acceptance criteria that mentioned a lack of API overlap as a 
condition for inclusion.

I think there should definitely be some requirement added to the project 
acceptance criteria, but I'm in the minority it seems in this thinking.
