Maybe this is a bit of a tangent from the overall discussion, but
since a lot of confusion, and bad perception, can stem from dead
projects - as a first small step, could we move dead projects
out of openstack/* into closedstack/* and move or mark their wiki
to indicate it is just for legacy reference?
