Official projects and the boundary of "what is OpenStack"

Join members of the Technical Committee to discuss effectively evaluating applications from projects that want to be "official" OpenStack projects. Each time an application happens there is extensive discussion about what it means to be official and how any individual applications fits into the bigger picture of what we are trying to create in OpenStack.

We shouldn't move the goalposts during an application, but then we forget to talk about the difficulties again until the next time an application happens. In this session, we'll remember and reflect on all the things said in conversations like http://eavesdrop.openstack.org/irclogs/%23openstack-tc/%23openstack-tc.2018-03-29.log.html#t2018-03-29T15:04:56 but discuss them outside the context of an individual application, hopefully reaching some clarity on how to effectively evaluate applications for fit and the growth of OpenStack.
