My $0.01 opinion is to move the OpenStack SDK "project" to be a
generic "SDK" project, in which gophercloud could live. Mainly for a
point of contact perspective, but I think "whatever works" may be best
in the end.

I strongly suspect it wouldn't be hard to convince ironic contributors
to do something similar for Ironic's CI.

On a plus side, the official SDK list could be updated... This would
be kind of epic, actually.
