Wanted: benevolent dictator
I am of the opinion that OpenStack is doomed to irrelevance (in Trevor Potts' memorable phrase, "the domain of people who keep their pee in jars"). Giant size OSS projects are not, contrary to popular belief, the collective output of hundreds of people contributing code in a wholly democratic process. Rather, there is someone at the top who has the earned respect, technical chops and savvy to set the direction and make decisions. Linus. De Raadt. Behlendorf. Everything after that is labor, some of which is volunteered and some of which is under the aegis of a sponsor like IBM and RedHat (who throw bodies at, say, contributing to the kernel).
We need someone like that. If you don't believe me, go to a dev track at the next O/S summit and see if a decision on anything can get made.
