So currently these are largely separate efforts. The folks working on
knife-cloudstack or puppet-cloudstack largely aren't directly
contributing to Apache CloudStack. (with a few exceptions) These
projects have either no real community or their own community
(knife-cloudstack being the example there). To be clear - I'd
personally prefer that these go to live elsewhere, and we get rid of
most of the repos in that org.

I am also somewhat concerned about providing governance for these
external projects. If we (the project) do want to provide governance,
we can trivially get additional git repos on ASF hardware.
