Not all OpenStack projects use the same task trackers currently and
there's no guarantee that they ever will, so this is a best effort
only. Odds are you may wind up duplicating some information also
present in the Nova project on Launchpad, the Tripleo project on
Trello and the Foobly project on Bugzilla (I made this last one up,
in case it's not obvious).

If it looks generic enough, it will become that unless there are
people actively devoted to triaging and pruning submissions to
curate them... a tedious and thankless long-term commitment, to be

This is definitely a good source of input, but still needs someone
to determine which various projects/services the tasks for them get
slotted into and then help prioritizing and managing spec
submissions on a per-team basis.

The way to do that on storyboard.openstack.org is to give it a
project of its own. Basically just couple it to a new, empty Git
repository and then the people doing these tasks still have the
option of also putting that repository to some use later (for
example, to house their workflow documentation).

It seems a fine plan, just keep in mind that documenting and
publishing feedback doesn't magically translate into developers
acting on any of it (and this is far from the first time it's been
