Resurrecting this thread, as OSops has now been revived under the 
auspices of the OpenStack Operation Docs and Tooling SIG.

There are basically 3 potential ways forward for OSarchiver:

1- Keep it as-is on GitHub, and reference it where we can in OpenStack docs

2- Relicense it under Apache-2 and move it in a subdirectory under 

3- Move it under its own repository under opendev and propose it as a 
new official OpenStack project (relicensing under Apache-2 will be 
necessary if accepted)

Options (1) and (3) have the benefit of keeping it under its own 
repository. Options (2) and (3) have the benefit of counting towards an 
official OpenStack contribution. Options (1) and (2) have the benefit of 
not requiring TC approval.

All other things being equal, if the end goal is to increase 
discoverability, option 3 is probably the best.
