 > 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? 

+1 on adding Martin in refstack-core group. I think Thierry can add him.  Also, we can have interop chair (Prakash currently) also to be part of these groups to make such future changes?
