While I personally agree that Fuel should be moved out of the official 
projects list, I'd like to point out that Triple-O is virtually entirely 
a Red Hat project:


so the fact that a project is entirely run by a single vendor or "has 
popularity outside one vendor's customer base" has not been and 
continues not to be a deciding factor on whether something is an 
official OpenStack project or not.

I'd fully support the removal of all deployment projects from the 
"official OpenStack projects list".
