General answer (not only for your module):

- If the module can be used by anyone in Ansible community (and not
only in TripleO), push it to be in Ansible Modules Extras:
- If it's rejected from Ansible Modules Extras, you can host it on
your own namespace or use redhat-openstack. Example with
- If it's something TripleO (which means you can run the roles /
module only in a TripleO environment): I would suggest to move it
under OpenStack namespace, under TripleO umbrella, to have a
consistent governance, CI and release management.

I hope this short answer helped. Please give any feedback.
