Thomas, thanks for all your hard work. I hope you can return to it soon
and that this serves as a notice that we need more investment to keep
OpenStack viable in Debian and Ubuntu.

Can I propose that we start to move some of the libraries and things
like OpenStack Client into DPMT/DPAT?  They don't require constant
attention, and it will be helpful to have a larger team assisting in
the packaging where it doesn't require anything OpenStack specific to
keep moving forward.
