My advice would be: get started now; worry about others deprecating at the Vancouver summit. ;] My experience has been that people who care look for people they know involved, popularity, and currency/signs-of-life. I'd bet that if you: * Provide the plugin under a clearly related, "official" github account which has good reputation (either hashicorp or mitchellh work for this) * Actively maintain it so the commit history shows signs of life * Publicize it widely, from their blog as well as others ... you'll gain the momentum you want within 3-6 months. --j _______________________________________________ OpenStack-dev mailing list OpenStackfirstname.lastname@example.org http://lists.openstack.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/openstack-dev
