[Openstack-operators] Operations project: Packaging

Hi all,

Packaging was one of the biggest points of interest in the Friday Paris
meeting, and I'd like to use this thread to have a centralised discussion
and/or argument regarding whether there is a packaging system that is
flexible enough that we can adopt it as a community and reduce the
fragmentation. This conversation began in Paris, but will likely continue
for some time.

The Friday session indicates that as operators we have common requirements:

A system that takes the sources from upstream projects and produces
artifacts (packages or images).

There are numerous projects that have attempted to solve this problem. Some
are on stackforge, some live outside. If you are an author or a user of one
of these systems, please give your opinion.

Once it becomes clear who is interested in this topic, we can create a
working group that will move towards standardising on a single system that
meets the needs of the community. Once the key individuals for this project
are clear, we can schedule an appropriate meeting time on irc for further
discussion that will probably be needed.
