This is becoming a familiar theme for projects/efforts with touchpoints
across OpenStack.

Docs deliverables have been moved into individual projects, and "the
docs team" is becoming a SIG [1]. But who is the Dean of docs, making
sure we retain a common structure, style, and voice across all of these
deliverables?

SDK is making forays into the "trust component SMEs" arena [2].

The API-SIG is undergoing a similar existential exercise [3], and it is
unclear where its deliverables will end up.

And this issue with OSC is not new.

All of these have their own nuances, but also quite a bit in common. Can
we brainstorm ways that might address more than one in a satisfactory
way? Here's one idea:

Deliverables live in projects under the governance of their component;
so for example nova-docs and nova-osc-plugin and nova-sdk-plugin would
be under nova governance, with core teams managed by nova. But patches
in those projects require an additional vote of a different flavor (a
"Rollcall-Vote"?) from the related SIG or core team in order to merge.

Thoughts?
