Tobias and I were chatting at OpenStack Days Nordic about the Public 
Cloud Working Group potentially taking over as custodians of the vendor 
profile information [0][1] we keep in openstacksdk (and previously in 

I think this is a fine idea, but we've got some dancing to do I think.

A few years ago Dean and I talked about splitting the vendor data into 
its own repo. We decided not to at the time because it seemed like extra 
unnecessary complication. But I think we may have reached that time.

We should split out a new repo to hold the vendor data json files. We 
can manage this repo pretty much how we manage the 
service-types-authority [2] data now. Also similar to that (and similar 
to tzdata) these are files that contain information that is true 
currently and is not release specific - so it should be possible to 
update to the latest vendor files without updating to the latest 

If nobody objects, I'll start working through getting a couple of new 
repos created. I'm thinking openstack/vendor-profile-data, owned/managed 
by Public Cloud WG, with the json files, docs, json schema, etc, and a 
second one, openstack/os-vendor-profiles - owned/managed by the 
openstacksdk team that's just like os-service-types [3] and is a 
tiny/thin library that exposes the files to python (so there's something 
to depend on) and gets proposed patches from zuul when new content is 
landed in openstack/vendor-profile-data.

How's that sound?
