You are right, that's the correct link for the overcloud setup. However, 
I intentionally picked the one for the undercloud because I wanted to 
focus on the keystone configuration part and that's the same for the 
both (the init-keystone, setup-endpoints and keystone role-create 
workflow). There are some other stuff going on in the overcloud setup 
(eg. creating a vm for a user) which might distract those who are not 
familiar with devtest from what really is needed to deploy OpenStack. 
But it would have been better from me to note that the link is not for 
the overcloud.

Yeah, we can put big part of the needed configuration steps into Tuskar 
as most of it just uses CLI client of Keystone which can be replaced by 
using the direct API calls of the same library. The rest might go to 
Heat or os-refresh-config or else.
