Thanks Lajos, 

Main point here is if it is maintained by current maintainer (inspur team or other developers) whether neutron team will consider that
to be in added in neutron stadium?

If yes, then it will be extra work to move to x/ namespace now and then bring back to openstack/.
If no, then moving to x/ namespace is good option or if maintainer want to be in openstack then we can discuss about
a separate new project (but that needs more discussion on host much cost it adds).
