That's not entirely truth. There's package name differences (and the
services which they attach to) for Nova, Neutron and Horizon. All of
which is handled by upstream puppet-openstack.

Hopefully, this will happen soon. Though best would be if it is made in
upstream infra. Which I'm currently stuck with because I don't know how
to add a new Debian image. If this happen, then my project will go further.

See above. Help me to get a patch on upstream project-config, to get a
new Debian image added, then I'll be able to work further on this.
