The release team only takes care of Big Tent projects, documentation and
translation teams are not covering independent projects - including
using the docs.openstack.org web site for publishing. Even in the Big
Tent you are not forced to release at a specific release milestone.

We don't have stackforge anymore by name, just by spirit: you can create
a repo for this as independent project as openstack/delimter,

Note that you can also start now under an existing project - like
keystone, glance or oslo - and later spin off as separate independent team.

Starting off independent is fine in general - it just really strikes me
as odd that a cross-project effort considers itself outside of the Big Tent,
