I regret that Dimitry's initial post used a subject which seems to
be deepening confusion about OpenDev. Please understand that OpenDev
is a project hosting platform and community of collaboration
infrastructure sysadmins. What it means for a project to be "part of
OpenDev" is that it's a piece of the collaboration infrastructure
we're using to support and host open source software projects.
Ironic would not be that, nor do I think that's what Dimitry meant.

I think what he was trying to convey is that he still wants Ironic
to be "hosted in OpenDev" (using OpenDev's Gerrit instance for code
review, Zuul for project gating, Mailman for mailing lists, and so
on, like OpenStack does), and also for Ironic to apply to become an
official Open Infrastructure Project represented by the OSF (like
OpenStack already is). Not all projects hosted in OpenDev are OSF
Open Infrastructure Projects, and not all OSF Open Infrastructure
Projects are hosted in OpenDev. Also the vast majority of projects
hosted in OpenDev are not "part of OpenDev." We'll navigate this
discussion best if we don't conflate these concepts needlessly.
