My suggestion is start on stackforge now. We know the direction this
wants to head, and it's better to get it functioning like an openstack
project from day one, as it will mean way less friction in making it
officially something (be it a program / project / whatever) down the road.

And, I, for one, am very excited to see energy going into this.
