To me, bringing it in under ClusterLabs sounds more interesting, to be
honest. The community has direct control and it further clarifies that
ClusterLabs is the core development hub for Pacemaker-based HA, plus
it's an opportunity to make the process for proposing changes simple and
clear: Make a pull request at github.com/ClusterLabs/ocf, the discussion
and acceptance/rejection happens there.

The OCF standard is already stagnated, bringing in more overhead and
process isn't going to improve that situation. From my perspective, it
needs less of that, not more.
