I simply used the first names that came to my mind out of the software 
that I know is in/on its way into Fedora; it doesn't have to be 
OpenShift specifically.  Sorry if it sounded like that.

You make a good point, but I'll take it one further:  perhaps getting 
everyone together to craft a single, very complete narrative at the FAD 
would provide everyone with a much-needed "whole story" that people can 
later tweak to work with different software stacks at all levels.  After 
this "initial" work is done it would make it that much easier for people 
to come up with good narratives on their own later.

How does that sound to you folks?
