As many of you are aware, the interop working group defines test advisories
for evaluating implementations of OpenStack for interoperability. The
implementers themselves - whether they are OpenStack cloud operators,
distributions or vendors of specific products aligning with OpenStack use
refstack-client [1] to submit their results. Refstack client is a bunch of
helpful scripts to stand up tempest, run the tests and compile results. The
results compiled from refstack-client are posted to
https://refstack.openstack.org - code for which exists in the "refstack"
repository [2]

For a few releases now, gmann has pointed out to the Interop WG that
refstack needs maintainers. In our last meeting, Martin Kopec (mkopec)
volunteered to maintain refstack-client, and help coordinate changes to
adopt the latest advisories published by the interop working group.
Martin's been running interop testing for Red Hat OpenStack, and he has
contributed ansible automation for installing, running tests and submitting
results [3]. So he'll bring valuable interop perspective to this project
and maintain it effectively. The interop WG also suggested that Martin's
ansible scripts [3] be moved under the "osf/" organization on opendev.org,
and he's currently pursuing that [4].

I see a number of names on the refstack-core group on Gerrit [5]. Is it
possible there's anyone in the team that's still involved in the
maintenance of this project, and can add Martin?
