I am agree with all of you, But most of the projects are lacking of
contributors. Keep or remove Murano can not make things better. I know some
people are using Murano internal, they submited a bugfix sometimes. Remove
Murano can not make those people focus on other projects, But will let
those people out and a PTL out.
