I'm curious why being independent of OpenStack would make it more attractive.

Is the perception that requiring people to sign the Contributor Agreement is 
holding back external contribution?  Or is it just that the mere idea of it 
being an OpenStack project is discouraging people from getting involved?

Just as an example, if I want to get involved with libvirt because I have an 
itch to scratch the fact that it's basically a RedHat project isn't going to 
turn me off...
