[openstack-dev] [tripleo] Adventures in QuintupleO

I've been spending some time getting quintupleo working on top of a Juno 
RDO OpenStack. I'm at a point now where I think it is worth putting 
effort into making it easy for anyone to try this.

Ben Nemec has done the hard work of proving this is possible[1] 
resulting in the repo he uses to bring up an environment which behaves 
like a baremetal env[2]

I'd like to build on this to create a new upstream repo aimed at setting 
up an environment which is ready for undercloud and overcloud installation.

For rdo-management, using it would be documented in its own section of 
the Setup chapter[3]

Ben's heat templates bring up BMC and baremetal nodes. I've been 
extending those to also define the undercloud network and a bare 
undercloud node ready for undercloud installation (or optionally an 
image-based undercloud).  Another future enhancement could be to figure 
out how to use only a single nova server serve all of the BMC requests 
(possibly with one server having a neutron port per baremetal it is 

This will still require patching the nethercloud until we can find a way 
of upstreaming those changes. The repo can at least be where those 
patches live for now.

So my questions for now would be:

What should the repo be called? quintuplo-setup?

Where should it live? git openstack in the openstack namespace? github
