I think since PHL many of us have been just waiting for info on how we can
participate and proceed. Happy to discuss further in YVR or just start

> Hello folks,
> in PHL meeting the discussion on project tags[1] highlighted that
> operators are looking for answers to questions like:
>    * Are fixes backported? Or Consumes Master to get fixes?
>    * Is it packaged?
>    * Is it stable? Mature?
>    * is it tested in Tempest/Rally/whatever so I can test before I
> deploy changes?
>    * What API Version does it offer
>    * Is documentation available
> I think these questions come down to identifying a 'maturity model' or
> 'evaluation model' that can help people select OpenStack software to
> solve their needs.  The good news is that other communities have been in
> similar situation and looking at them can provide a path for us to
> follow (and mistakes to avoid).
> Apache and Polarsys (an Eclipse working group) have each developed a
> maturity model for their own purposes[2][3]. Each one is focused on
> relevant aspects to the respective community, but all are similar in how
> they are produced. One part of the model comes directly from metrics
> retrieved from repositories (such as this diversity metric, which we
> track with the diverse-affiliation tag[4]), a part needs human
> intervention (such as the release:managed or release:has-stable-branches
> which we add semi-manually [4]).
> I'd like to continue the conversation about an OpenStack Maturity Model
> that can be consumed by users downstream. Any suggestions on how to move
> this project forward?
