We try to target puppet module master at upstream OpenStack master, but
without CI/CD we fall behind. The missing piece is building packages and
creating a local repo before doing the puppet run, which I'm working on
slowly as I want a single system for both deb and rpm that doesn't make my
eyes bleed. fpm and pleaserun are the two key tools here.

It's possible but it's also straight up a poor thing to do in my opinion.
If you're going to install nova from source, maybe you also want libvirt
from source to test a new feature, then you want some of libvirt's deps and
so on. Puppet isn't equipped to deal with this effectively. It runs yum
install x, and that brings in the dependencies.
It's much better to automate the package building process and install
everything using that single method. Otherwise the operations team now has
to consider which dependencies have come from pip, and which have come from
