Hi everybody,
as discussed in today's TripleO meeting [1] here's a brief recap of the
tripleo-quickstart-utils topic.

### TL;DR ###

We are trying to understand whether is good or not to put the contents
of [2] somewhere else for a wider exposure.

### Long version ###

tripleo-quickstart-utils project started after splitting the
ha-validation stuff from the tripleo-quickstart-extras repo [3],
basically because the specificity of the topic was creating a leak of
Today this repository have three roles:

1 - validate-ha: to do ha specific tests depending on the version. This
role relies on a micro bash framework named ha-test-suite available in
the same repo, under the utils directory;

2 - stonith-config: to configure STONITH inside an HA env;

3 - instance-ha: to configure high availability for instances on the
compute nodes;

Despite of the name, this is not just a tripleo-quickstart related
project, it is also usable on every TripleO deployed environment, and is
meant to support all the TripleO OpenStack versions from kilo to pike
for all the roles it sells;

There's also a docs related to the Multi Virtual Undercloud project [4]
that explains how to have more than one virtual Undercloud on a physical
machine to manage more environments from the same place.

That's basically the meaning of the word "utils" in the name of the repo.

What I would like to understand is if you see this as something useful
that can be placed somewhere more near to upstream TripleO project, to
reach a wider audience for further contribution/evolution.
