[openstack-dev] [Fuel][Agent] Moving Fuel Agent to a separate repo

As a fuel-separatist I give this initiative a big +1 because of the following advantages I can see:

 - Git is designed for keeping smaller single-compoent repos, keeping everything to one repo is a discouraged pattern
 - Having a separate -core group that will only contain active core reviewers for fuel-agent project so getting core-reviews will be easier.
 - It makes possible to re-use some of the existing jobs in OpenStack CI
 - Making independent releases becomes possible

AFAIK fuel-agent is positioned as an independent provisioning tool which will not be exclusively used by Fuel. There is a work in progress to integrate it with Ironic. Integrating it to any other provisioning system should also be possible then. From that perspective putting it into its own repo also brings the following advantages:

 - Connecting 3rd party CI will be possible
 - Getting involved for the new folks will be much easier

> As most of you might know we have a bunch of projects inside fuel-web repo which are not directly related to Fuel Web application. Some of them are tested together and it seemed we could end up with a set of  incompatibility issues if we separated them and stopped tracking their versions on the git level (instead of release level).
> Recent activities about separating Fuel Client from Nailgun (api) make me think we are mature enough to move all other not related project out of fuel-web repo and bring them together not earlier than on the stage of system/functional testing.
> Next step would be moving out Fuel Agent project. The reason is that it is independent and potentially could be used even out of Fuel because its data parsing mechanism is implemented so as to be agnostic to the data format. Some people could be potentially interested in using it independently with their own data format. It is tested together with other Fuel components during system testing only.
