[openstack-dev] [all][tc] Moving away from "big tent" terminology

I'm confused by the proposal; you've made a 1-1 substitution of "big tent"
with "openstack project" and then there are some "openstack hosted

How does that clarify the situation?

It does not help me answer the question "Is Trove part of OpenStack?" with
any more clarity than before.

So I'm missing something and judging by the follow-up's I'm not the only

And yes, "friends of OpenStack" only begs the question who are not friends
of OpenStack :)
