[Openstack-operators] Proposal for an 'Operations' project

Earlier today Jay Pipes mentioned that he had some rsyslog config examples for Doing Useful Things with openstack logs. This would be another useful place to store such things. 
Another thing worth tracking would be one off ops-task tooling. Those little shell scripts we've all written to true up munged quota, pull some info directly from the db, etc. 
I'll head towards the couch at 0900. See ya there!

 Hi Operators!
I felt like OpenStack didn't have enough projects, so here's another one.
During the summit I feel like I'm repeatedly having the same conversations with different groups about bespoke approaches to operational tasks, and wrapping these in a project might be a way to promote collaboration on them.
Off the top of my head there's half a dozen things that might belong here:
 - Packaging tooling (spec files/fpm script/whatever) - (Ansible/other) playbooks for common tasks - Log aggregation (Logstash/Splunk) filters and tagging - Monitoring (Nagios) checks - Ops dashboards
There's also things that *might* belong here but maybe not:
 - Chef/Puppet/Ansible/Salt OpenStack config management modules
Today these are generally either wrapped up in products from various companies, or in each company's github repo.
For those of you who are still around at the design summit and don't have plans for tomorrow, how about we meet on Friday morning at the large white couch in the meridian foyer at 9am? Let's see what we can sort out.
