Not currently.  Those steps are done seperately from a different host
after Heat reports the stack as completed and running.  In the Tuskar
model, that host would be the undercloud.  Tuskar would have to know
what steps to run do the post configuration/setup of the overcloud.

I believe It would be possible to instead automate that so that it
happens as part of the os-refresh-config cycle that runs scripts at
boot time in an image.  At the end of the initial os-refresh-config
run there is a callback to Heat to indicate success.  So, if we did
that, the Overcloud would basically configure itself then callback to
Heat to indicate it all worked.
