AW: [gnocchi][telemetry][ceilometer][cloudkitty] Gnocchi unmaintained

It sure is, we as well abandoned the MongoDB backend for Gnocchi which 
works pretty well.

Would be a shame if a migration back would be required, maybe we can get 
a discussion going on a more
long-term solution as was discussed when talking about the future of 

Supporting Gnocchi or moving to another open source project as a storage 
backend that is stable and maintained.
There were (and still is? Though unofficial out-of-tree) storage 
backends for Ceilometer that publishes to InfluxDB.

I were never able to follow-up on the meetings (I probably missed a lot 
of it) regarding the Ceilometer roadmap [1].
