> We source OpenStack from RDO for the packages and additional integration testing that comes from the project instead of using OpenStack directly. I was a little turned off from Triple-O when I saw it was source only. The feeling being that it is "too green" for our tastes. Which may be inaccurate. While I might be convinced to use source, its a much harder sell to us currently then using packages.

Kevin, thanks for sharing. I think I understand that it is just a new
way of thinking and that makes it that much harder to consume.

We have good reasons for not using packages. And we're not just making
this up as a new crazy idea, we're copying what companies like Netflix
have published about running at scale. We need to do a better job at
making sure why we're doing some of the things we're doing.
