(CC'ing Paul, as I would like to hear openstack-infra feedback on that point)

Yes, we will discuss that item during our next meeting.
If there's agreement to create a rdo-extras repository, projects
tagged release:independent are candidate to be shipped in that

What we need to figure out is what *exactly* it should contains,
provisionnally, it is:
* shade + latest clients from stable branches
* projects tagged release:independent
* minor utilities only available through EPEL and useful for
openstack-infra (should it be a separate repo?)
