I actually would prefer something on the opposite end of the spectrum
from the Eclipse Foundation.

Eclipse is almost entirely driven by tools vendors. OpenStack is not.
It's driven mostly by cloud deployers and services companies, not
vendors selling open (and closed) source widgets and tools around
cloud deployments. I think tools vendors tend to narrow the focus of a
foundation to the point of being overly commercialized and
self-serving versus foundations where users, integrators and
implementors drive the direction of innovation in the community.

But this is just my opinion, nothing more.
