Hence the "trying to come about". And the only thing proposed for real
life right now is a project under stackforge whose long term goal is
to merge into the Deployment program. I don't get the opposition to a
long term goal.

Certainly true. Perhaps the mission statement for the Deployment
program needs some tweaking. Perhaps it will be covered by whatever
plays out within the larger OpenStack changes that are being discussed
about the future of programs/projects/etc.

Personally, I think there is some room for interpretation in the
existing mission statement around the "wherever possible" phrase.
Where it's not possible, OpenStack does not have to be used. So again,
we probably need to update for clarity. I think the Deployment program
should work with the TC to help define what it wants to be.

I'm not sure who you are arguing against that has that perception :).

I've reread the thread, and I see desires being voiced  to join an
existing program, and some initial support offered in favor of that,
minus your responses ;-). Obviously patches would have to be proposed
to the governance repo to add projects under the program, those would
have to be approved by people with +2 in governance, etc. No one
claims it will be magically done.

Based on what you're saying about the Deployment program, you seem to
indicate the TC would say No.

I don't speak for the program. In the past, I've personally expressed
support for alternative implementations where they make sense for
OpenStack as a whole, and I still feel that way.
