some porjects like nova and neutron never left launchpad and personally
i had hopped they never would so that is still my preference but as far
as i know there is notihgn preventing any project form move too or moving
from launchpad as it stands.
if kolla* waht move they can without needing to change any other policies
the cookie cutter templeate for seting up new repo also support both you can
select it when you create the repo. im not sure what the default is currently
but you are given the choice if i recall correctly.
