In one of the cloud product that I work on has same feature and when I
looked at OpenStack I was thinking why we should rely on third party tool
for this and do not have OpenStack backed solution.

I think I can help to add autoyast. I have not tried this tool yet. I will
try it and let you know.

Thanks and Regards
