[ClusterLabs] Moving PAF to clusterlabs ?

Hi All,

I am currently thinking about moving the RA PAF (PostgreSQL Automatic Failover)
out of the Dalibo organisation on Github. Code and website.

The point here is to encourage the community to contribute to the project (not
only in code, but feedback, use, doc, etc), stating that this is a truly
community-oriented project. Not just a beast from Dalibo for Dalibo. Moreover,
this project already receive a significant amount of contribution from some
other people outside of Dalibo.

I would rather love seeing it in ClusterLabs organization. Either as a specific
project or directly in the resource-agents one. However, I'm not sure of what
it would requiert, how it can conflict with the pgsql existing RA, if it should
move to its own namespace, etc. I already explained some years ago why we built
this RA instead of using the existing one. See thread [1].

Currently, PAF links are:

* homepage: http://dalibo.github.io/PAF/documentation.html
* lists: 
  * pgsql-general https://www.postgresql.org/list/pgsql-general/
  * users at clusterlabs.org
* code: https://github.com/dalibo/PAF/
* issues: https://github.com/dalibo/PAF/issues
* license: PostgreSQL (BSD-like)
* language: perl
* packages: RPM and Deb (available on github or included in the PGDG repository)

Note that part of the project (some perl modules) might be pushed to
resource-agents independently, see [2]. Two years after, I'm still around on
this project. Obviously, I'll keep maintaining it on my Dalibo's and personal
