Thanks Andreas for raising this.

As an extra data point, my long-term plan was to have SDKs and CLIs 
properly listed in the Software pages under SDKs[1], including 
third-party ones in their own subtab, all driven from the 
osf/openstack-map repository[2].

With that in mind, I think it would make sense to look into retiring 
developer.openstack.org, and move docs to docs.openstack.org. We could 
also revive https://www.openstack.org/appdev/ and use it as the base 
landing page to direct application-side people to the various pieces.
