Re: BOSH OpenStack CPI: planned end of maintenance by end of 2019

I should imagine there must be enough very large consumers of the OpenStack CPI to make it commercially viable for a small team to be funded that could maintain it, were all said consumers to pull together and contribute what I should imagine would be a small sliver of their total CF expenditure.
If any OpenStack CPI users want to talk to EngineerBetter about funded development, we'd be happy to have that conversation as we're doing some similar EOL work for other CF projects.
Similarly, if our chums at Anynines, Altoros, S&W, GrapeUp, EVoila, GStack, Armakuni, Novatec or others want to work together on this, we'd be open to that. I can also imagine that some chunk of Pivotal's revenue depends on this CPI, so perhaps some of our teal friends might be interested too? It could be like one of those Marvel films (that I don't watch) where we all team up to vanquish the evil villain of abandoned software.
Marco - how many pairs were working on these streams of work, and do you have a feel for the balance of vital maintenance, tech debt, new features, and quality-of-life improvements in the backlog?
