I finally got started on this today but am having some issues,
likely because I am trying to do too many things at once.

I started extracting ceilometer from devstack into its own plugin.
This is working in local tests.

It revealed that it would likely be problematic without there also being
a grenade plugin. So I started that too.


* Is it necessary for the plugins to merge to master before testing
   can completely or is there a clean way to reference the plugins
   before they have merged?

* How do branches come into play in any of this, if at all?

* Are there particular issues that come up with projects like
   Ceilometer where the goal is to move an existing project out of
   both devstack and grenade?

Links to the various related reviews below. I'm sure I've gotten
parts wrong and missed bits, but I figured I'd get starting points
in place and iterate.

There is quite a stack of interdependent patches making this go,
they can all be found by starting at the devstack change which
removes ceilometer


The other patches are:

* The actual devstack plugin for ceilo:

* Setting the plugins in project config:

* The start of the grenade plugin:

* Removing ceilometer from grenade:
