I understand that space is limited and it is true to mention TripleO
has the single-vendor tag.
Although this tag, TripleO has a lot of horizontal interactions with
others projects in OpenStack:

- Ironic, used to bootstrap the TripleO overcloud. Ironic folks could
weight we have a bunch of common work there.
- Heat, used to orchestrate the TripleO overcloud deployment (and soon
the undercloud too).
- Puppet OpenStack modules. Despite PuppetOpenStack project might skip
PTG because we don't need it [1] until now, we still have a lot of
collaboration between both groups.
- OpenStack Infra. TripleO & Infra folks keep increasing the
collaboration on multiple topics (third party CI, multinode jobs,

I might have missed it, but did we document PTG allocation space
priorities? If not, we might want to make it clear in the
single-vendor tag doc.
I'm concerned by the fact whether or not space is granted for a
project would be a subjective decision to take.

ack. I'll follow what happens. I appreciate your quick feedback, that
will let us to find a fallback in case of rejection.
