[openstack-dev] [TripleO] icehouse-1 test disk images setup

So, thoughts...

I do see this as useful, but I don't see an all-in-one overcloud as
useful for developers of tuskar (or pretty much anything). It's just
not realistic enough.

I'm pro having downloadable images, long as we have rights to do that
for whatever OS we're based on. Ideally we'd have images for all the
OSes we support (except those with restrictions like RHEL and SLES).

Your instructions at the moment need to be refactored to support
devtest_testenv and other recent improvements :)

BTW the MTU note you have will break folks actual environments unless
they have jumbo frames on everything- I *really wouldn't do that* -
instead work on bug https://bugs.launchpad.net/neutron/+bug/1270646
