With your change now merged I believe there should be a list of missing 
features / projects not yet integrated. Maybe even a blueprint (for 
others) to pick up an and to continue the path to provide a full 
solution for project cleanup.
Something apparently not on this list yet is object storage, so Swift / 
RADOS GW (S3), ..

Swift documents something called the account reaper 
(https://docs.openstack.org/swift/victoria/overview_reaper.html), but I 
don't know how that fits into the picture.
As for S3 powered by i.e. RADOS GW I don't know if there are any 
standard-tools yet.

Regards and thanks again for cleaning up the trash ;-)
