This isn't the place for usage questions, I was wondering how you deal with that separation or if it's not yet been worked into the branch?

I haven't done the work on that separation quite yet.  That could potentially be done using our existing affinity settings in OpenStack-Ansible, provided that Octavia is treated as a separate service.  My branch doesn't account for that.

There's some work underway to get barbican rolling with OpenStack-Ansible and that should make the certificate management part a bit easier.

Either way, we usually have folks in the channel around the clock, so feel free to jump in and ask questions.
