True. retire process from x/ namespace can be based on separate criteria for example, there are maintainer or not.
As this is not in OpenStack governance, it is totally fine to check with x/glare team via this ML or including their past
maintainer as not all might have subscribed to this ML. From seeing the commit history, I cannot see much development
in the last 6-7 months.

I think it makes sense to move puppet-glare also to x/ namespace if glare team exists and wants to maintain it. Let's wait
if glare maintainer reply on this ML otherwise you can propose to remove it from OpenStack governance with puppet's PTL agreement.
