Hello Skyline team,

We have not heard from you on the open questions (mentioned in 
https://review.opendev.org/c/openstack/governance/+/814037 too). It's been ~ 21 days
TC has voted -1 in Gerrit with required things to fix/or tell plan so that TC can merge the
new project application.  

Please respond on the Gerrit to proceed next.
