Thanks for pulling this together.

I think getting the undercloud installed/deployed should be a
requirement for Icehouse.  I'm not sure if you meant that or were
assuming that it would already be done :).  I'd like to see a simpler
process than building the seed vm, starting it, deploying undercloud,
etc.  But, that's something we can work to define if others agree as

By this, do you mean using the undercloud to scale itself?  e.g.,
using nova on the undercloud to launch an additional undercloud
compute node, etc.  I like that concept, and don't see any reason why
that wouldn't be technically possible.

So, I think this may be what Robert was getting at, but I think this
one should be M or possibly even committed to Icehouse.  I think it's
very likely we're going to need to update which image is used to do
the deployment, e.g., if you build a new image to pick up a security

IIRC, the image is just referenced by name in the template.  So,
maybe the process is just:

* build the new image
* rename/delete the old image
* upload the new image with the required name (overcloud-compute,

However, having a nicer image selection process would be nice.
