I think the downloadable images would be great. We've done such a
thing for RDO.  And (correct me if I'm wrong), but I think the Helion
community distro does so as well? If that's the use case that seems to
work well downstream, it'd be nice to have a similar model upstream as

For a bootstrap process just to try things out or get setup for
development, we could skip one layer and go straight from the seed to
the overcloud. In such a scenario, it may make sense to refer to the
seed as the undercloud since it's also your deployment cloud, and so
tuskar would likely be installed there.

We could also explore using the same image for the seed and
undercloud, and that would give folks one less image to

Agreed that this will be good to discuss at the contributor meetup at
