Skyline looks nice. However, looking nice isn't enough. Before it
becomes an OpenStack official component, maybe it should first try to
reach our standard. I'm namely thinking about having a proper setuptool
integration (using PBR?) for example, and starting tagging releases.

I'm very much interested in packaging this for Debian/Ubuntu, if it's
not a JS dependency hell. Though the current Makefile thingy doesn't
look appealing.

I've seen the console has at least 40 JS direct dependency. How many
indirect dependency is this? Has anyone looked into it?

Is the team ready to help making it package-able in a distro policy
compliant way?

Your thoughts?
