Re: [openstack-dev] Avoiding regression in project governance

Blocking the acceptance of new projects seems punitive and against the spirit of the big tent. Classification (tagging) can be done at any point, and is hardly fixed in stone. You can refine tags as needed. To put it harshly: it is a failure of both leadership and process to have stripped out

As the former Horizon PTL, I have a great respect for the importance of the contributions the distro maintainers/developers make to Horizon and OpenStack as a whole. From how many bugs the distros manage to find, to their diligence in vetting the software that we as Horizon developers provide,

SQLite doesn't introduce any additional dependencies, memcached requires installation of memcached (admittedly it's not hard on most distros, but it *is* yet another step) and in most cases the installation of another python module to interface with it. Memcached might be a good choice for
