Sorry I'm a bit confused here, are you actually saying that shade can't
be in RDO because it lives in a slightly different git repo location, a
location by which, is still referenced as perfectly valid for openstack
projects in Big tent

https://github.com/openstack/governance/blob/master/reference/projects.yaml

I'm also confused why you think the clients should also be moved out of
rdo into another repo as well. This is just splitting the repos up
needlessly isn't it? Shade, like oslo and other Openstack libraries,
should be part of RDO.

If shade was moved from the openstack-infra to the openstack git
namespace, would it be accepted then?

Graeme
