Yeah unfortunately we do have a tendency to overthink/complicate things.
Not saying Storyboard is the right tool but suggested rather than having
something extra to maintain was what I understood. There are at least 3
things that were to be addressed:

- single pane so folks know where to provide/see updates
- it is not a catchall/dumpsite
  - something still needs to be flushed out/prioritized (Public Cloud WG's
missing features spreadsheet for example)
- not specific to a single project (i thought this was a given since there
is already a process/workflow for single project)

I could very well be wrong so I am open to be corrected. From my
perspective the idea in the room was to not circumvent anything internal
but rather make it easy for external viewers, passerbys, etc. When feedback
is gathered from Ops Meetup, OpenStack Days, Local meetups/events, we
discussed putting that here as well.
