We've tried to bootstrap the cloud infra sig in the past, but never made
it as far as getting a proposal into the board for review and kickoff.
That would be the first step here.

Typically, the process works as:
- get a proposal into the board for review

- get the resources required setup

- get acl's setup to build at cbs.centos.org and import to git.centos.org

- do some builds, get the docs ready ( I presume this SIG could own a
chunk of, if not all of wiki.centos.org/Cloud )

- once we have a testing repo with the required basic bits in place, we
can look at doing a wider variant build and move to production release

One of the original goals was to setup things in a manner that this SIG
can help onboard all / any cloud infra project : it would be good if we
can retain that goal. I also think once we get a bit of traction on and
around the SIG, we would be able to get an easier contributor path.
Really, we just need to get stuff off the ground here.

Let me know when you want to sync up, maybe we can have a session on
irc, and see how best to get started.
