Subject Re: External fork of Cloudstack

I see you found the vote thread. Thanks for voting. :)

For now I think it is best that we try to avoid using the cloudstack org
for anything in order to mitigate confusion and try to get everyone on the
same page. We are charting new territory here, so removing as many
unnecessary distractions and causes for cloudy perception of what we are
trying to achieve is paramount IMO.

I personally think we should remove the cloudstack/cloudstack repo at this
point as I think it is more of a liability in this process than anything.
