I just want to point out that this appears to imply that open source
storage backends for OpenStack would be prioritized over closed-source
ones and I think that runs counter to the general inclusivity in the
community.  I assume it¹s just a turn of phrase, but I suspect it could be
easily misinterpreted to mean that open source storage projects (external
to OpenStack) could be prioritized over open source ones, creating a very
uneven playing field, which would potentially be very bad from a
perception point of view.
